K-Gr 2—Ninja Camp is a place where aspiring Night Ninjas learn the how to be stealthy, strong, and smart. Every day the campers learning new skills and moves and work toward mastering ninja weapons bringing them one step closer to their goals. The final challenge lies in a battle against the rival camp; the Day Ninjas have stolen the Shadow Blade and the Night Ninjas must use all of their newly acquired skills to regain possession of it. Though the opponent is also highly skilled, after a furious battle, the Night Ninjas do prevail, proving that they are the true masters of their art. The brightly colored cartoon illustrations are very visually stimulating, helping propel the story toward its thrilling ending. The snappy, rhyming text will appeal to early readers and read-aloud audiences.
VERDICT A recommended purchase for any library, this book will have kids asking when they can enroll in Ninja Camp!
