I purchased this book for my 7 year old who loves Marvel superheroes. I bought my younger son a similar book around the 5 minute stories theme last yearned I was really happy with the value for money so felt I would be happy with this purchase as well. I was not disappointed, my son loves the book. It is a quality hard cover book with detailed pages. Each story is roughly 15 pages long. Each page has two or three sentences. The stories are quick but engaging and there is a good variety of characters. The stories inc are The Amazing Spiderman: Keep Away From Kraven the Hunter The Uncanny X-Men: The X-Men's First Mission The Mighty Thor: A Brother's Battle The Invincible Iron Man : Iron Man's New Armor The Amazing Spiderman: Spiderman vs Sandman The Invincible Iron Man: Surprise Attack The Mighty Avengers: Captain America Returns The Amazing Spiderman: Spiderman vs The Sinister Six The Mighty Avengers: Hawkeye and the Mighty Avenger The Incredible Hulk: Desert Brawl The Amazing Spiderman: Peter Parkers Pictures The Courageous Captain America: The Lethal Lair of Red Skull I feel this book is best suited to a child under 8 or 9 years old. My 7 year old enjoys reading the stories and do take only about 5 minutes each. Ideal for bedtime stories! Highly recommended
Beautifully illustrated story book for children ages 2 and up. The book is around the same size as A4 paper and about 2/3rds of an inch thick. Each story is a perfect size for bedtime reading for young superhero fans. There are around 3-4 lines of text on each page with accompanying illustration. Even though the amount of text is small I find the children spend even more time discussing what is happening in the illustrations. So some imagination at work for sure on the part of the kids.
The cover of the book is nice, bright and shiney, and has that sort of padded feel finish to it. So although it is a heavy book and well finished it is comfortable to hold in bed. Each page is on relatively thick paper, perhaps 2 sheets of A4 thick so while not easily tearable you do have to watch out. Although the hard cover is larger than the pages and so shelters the edges of the pages.
For the price I wasn't expecting too much given the overpriced nature of anything popular for children these days but I was very impressed by the value on offer here. I bought this one and the Spider Man one.
My 2 year old loves the Hulk and Spiderman so I was very pleased when I found this book. It is a big hit in our house and I read him a story from this book before bed every night now. The stories are varied and cover all the main Marvel characters. And there are lots of lovely colourful pictures for him to look at too.
Bought for my 3.5yr old and 6yr old. Stories are just the right length for a bedtime story with lovely pictures (if you can describe pictures of brawling superheroes as lovely)! Superheroes featured include Spiderman, Thor, the X-men, ironman, captain America and hulk.
The stories are, by definition, short but ideal for holding the attention of a small person. Admittedly, the plots are too advanced for my 3 year old (who is obsessed with The Avengers) but the stories bring up questions from him that make the book worth reading to him. Overall better suited to be read to 5+ I would say.
