SPIDER Magazine July-August 2023


Buckle up! By bus, truck, car, carriage, or cable car, through crowded city streets or bumpy country roads, wheels take us far. A king discovers the best journey isn’t the fastest route, and a talking tire finds its way home.

This edition of SPIDER Magazine is a ride! Roads, tires, and racers all play a part in the journey SPIDER Magazine takes you on. 


Jump on the bus to see how Bree’s act of kindness comes back to help her, roll with two features about tires, and bid adieu to the King as he embarks on a journey. You’ll learn how to make your own racecourse and create a high-speed super slope so you can race your friends.
