Summary, etc.:
"After long being derided by the citizens of New Yolk, Spider-Ham has finally been recognized for his outsized contribution to the city's safety, and receives the key to the city from none other than the mayor. Of course, Spider-Ham isn't paying attention to the fine print telling him he didn't actually get to keep the key, and he swings off without returning the highly coveted oversized object. The next day, when the mayor's office finally gets in touch to ask for the key back, Spider-Ham realizes he must have dropped it sometime in the last 24 hours"-- Provided by publisher

    Everyone's favorite crime-fighting spider turned pig, Peter Porker, aka the Spectacular Spider-Ham, is the guest of honor at the mayor of New Yolk City's reelection rally. The superhero swine is being awarded the key to the city, but there's been a bit of a misunderstanding; at the ceremony, Spider-Ham swings off with the key, which the mayor wasn't actually giving for keeps. Worse, while out celebrating, Spider-Ham loses the key! When he's asked to return it, he has to retrace his steps and encounters with old friends and foes from the night before. Spider-Ham, a character from the immensely popular Into the Spider-Verse movie, is a fan-favorite, and this graphic novel, part of Scholastic's new collaboration with Marvel Comics, gives a glimpse of his life and the re-imagined characters who call this corner of the Spider-Verse home. Foxe conjures up the best, silliest versions of the characters inhabiting this dimension through his storytelling, and they're all brought to life in Amin's entertaining, zany artwork. A perfect pick for younger fans of Marvel's Spider-Verse. Grades 2-5. Copyright 2021 Booklist Reviews.
