The Amazing Spider-Man 2: Fully Charged by Brittany Candau

Title: The Amazing Spider-Man 2: Fully Charged
Author: Brittany Candau
Genre: Fiction, Picture Book
Reading Level: Ages 6 to 8

The Amazing Spider-Man 2: Fully Charged is a World of Reading: Level 2 reader (Kindergarten to Grade 2).  The plot focuses on Spider-Man having to deal with a new villain named Electro.  This book provides a good paced simple story line that can make it a great pick for reluctant readers that are fans of superheros like Spider-Man.  As a nice bonus there are also two pages of stickers inside the book.

Overall this is a well-done reader with illustrations that can help draw in reluctant readers.  It is also nice that it has a simple plot that is not oversimplified.  Yes, there is clearly parts of the upcoming movie not in the book, but Fully Charged chooses to focus on the villain and creates a reasonably complete plot, especially for a short picture book.

  • Fans of Marvel superheros, especially Spider-Man
