On his tenth birthday, nerdy, clumsy Nelson discovers that he is the last ninja in the world. And there’s an evil super scientist trying to destroy the town with giant spiders! Can Nelson save the day?
I thought Ninja Kid was a great book. It took me less than a day to read but nevertheless it was amazing. If you like funny humour then you will enjoy this new book by Anh Do, the author of Hot Dog and WeirDo. Even in the serious parts, there are jokes. There are amazing drawings by Jeremy Ley on almost every page, maybe even on every page, which makes it very fun to read. I recommend this for ages 7-10.
