Now that we’re finally through the Endgame, we can all take a breath and get ready for a more lighthearted entry in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. (Hopefully!) Judging by the hilarious new kids’ tie-in books for Spider-Man: Far From Home, Peter Parker’s next adventure is going to be just what everyone–especially the youngest Marvel fans–needs.
Pick these up for the little Spider-fans in your life, and we promise you’ll get a laugh out of them, too!
This picturesque picture book takes Peter Parker and friends through some of Europe’s cities. There might be slight spoilers in the illustrations–Ned is seen holding hands with a certain someone more than once–but nothing that might ruin the movie before you and the kids see it.
The illustrations by Andrew Kolb are vibrant and full of life; you’ll easily recognize Peter’s friends Ned, MJ, Flash Thompson, and more. (Look carefully and you might even spot a former director of S.H.I.E.L.D.) Writer Calliope Glass takes you and the kids on a quick tour of Venice, Prague, and London with just enough fun facts to tell kids about these historic locations without overloading them with information.
Spider-Man Swings Through Europe! is on sale June 4, 2019.
Written by Preeti Chhibber with illustrations by George McClements and Stéphane Kardos, Peter and Ned’s Ultimate Travel Journal will make middle-grade readers feel like they just made two new best friends. Peter, Ned, and occasionally MJ chronicle their History of Science tour through Europe with their teachers and classmates. From the duo’s packing lists to travel games (“Selfie Death Stare” might be added to our own family trips from now on) to the sights they see in Prague and more, Peter and Ned’s personalities shine through every page.
Like the picture book, this fictional diary might have some slight movie spoilers in it, but if your older readers can’t get enough of Peter Parker they won’t mind at all.
This spectacular book also goes on sale on June 4, 2019.
