An author, editor, television writer, and composer-there is little that Louise Ann Gikow has not done in children's entertainment. She's even spent time on the New York Times best-seller list for her novelization of The Grinch Who Stole Christmas. Now, she has teamed up with Marvel Press to create a must-read chapter book series starring Spider-Man! Life's hard-welcome to Peter Parker's world! He not only has to do tons of homework and help his Aunt May make ends meet, but also has to battle super villains and save the world. When Doc Ock rolls into town, it spells danger for everyone, especially Peter's best friends, Mary Jane and Harry. And Peter soon learns that the life of a super-hero isn't always so super.
