There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
My real annoyance is that these don't seem like Spiderman stories so much as Marvel stories. In every story but the first, some other superhero comes along to "help" Spiderman save the day, cuz he can't fight alone? Hulk is there, Iron Man is there, Captain America, Black Panther, and a dozen others....it's a whole parade! I picked this book over the 5-minute Marvel one because they like Spiderman. Seems like blatent cross-promotion to drum up merchandise sales. They're young, I'd prefer to dole out Marvel in small doses.

It seems especially harsh because there is a narrator. Age appropriate comic books seem to be easier, as there are only conversations and pictures. Here narrator has an opinion.
Book does have some scary scenes and a bit of violence. I am still not sure if I want to read this to my young kid every day, despite the fact that its a very nicely printed book. These stories seem to agitate the child and kid wants to imitate fighting and hit.
Also worth mentioning that its an American book and I don't always agree with its grammar.
Now when we raise kids without gun toys, in families that do not tolerate any kind of physical violence, it is becoming more difficult for kids to digest literature like this.
I have taken photographs of some of the pictures that seem a bit difficult to look at for a child (and even for an adult for a matter of fact).
I will recommend buying this book for kids above
6 years and only if you think that your kid can take it calmly, is not emotional and stories with bit of violence would not influence them.
