"NinjaCamp" - a bookwrap

What is a ninja?  According to Merriam-Webster a ninja is a person trained in ancient Japanese martial arts and employed especially for espionage and assassinations.  (hopefully not the last part of the definition here! No!) A person who excels in a particular skill or activity.

Unravelling the book

First let me start off by saying that Sue Flies is a very gifted children's storyteller.  I have had the privilege of reviewing several of her other books and everyone is excellent. "Ninja Camp" is another winner!  

Get ready for some action as an enthusiastic group of kids head off to Ninja camp to learn all the skills they need to become mighty ninja warriors.  They must listen carefully to the ninja master and in so doing he teaches them how to be sly, swift, strong and speedy.  Once they have perfected these skills only then will they qualify for the coveted title of Ninja of the Night!   Oh my do you think this motley crew of  ninja wanna-bees will make the grade?   I think they just might as they are all fired up to go. 

The book is full of action and stresses the importance of teamwork.  Written in rhyme the words flow and ebb perfectly as cool ninja warriors evolve right in front of your very eyes.  Kids will love this fun entertaining book and so will parents.  Ninja Camp isn't easy to conquer but oh the euphoric feeling when the fight is won and true Ninjas of the Night emerge.  I highly, highly recommend this book.
