Nelson is a ninja. He's not the coolest. Or the bravest. But he is the world's nerdiest ninja! And now he has to stop an animal rampage and machines going crazy all over town! For that, he'll need his new jetpack... and some serious ninja skills! How will Nelson learn to fly when he's scared of heights?!

Favourite Anh Do Series!


Anh writes such feel-good kid's books; they always make me smile and I come away from the experience feeling better about the world. In this instalment, Ninja Kid (Nelson) is up against all of the machines in Duck Creek, which are mysteriously coming to life each time it rains. There's also a class excursion to the zoo that includes a stampede of zoo animals. Once again Ninja Kid is teamed up with H-Dude (his best friend and cousin, Kenny) and awesome inventor Grandma Pat, who will always be my favourite character in the series. His mother is also there, but not in a starring role. In this book we find out just who that evil guy in the helicopter from the first book is and a little of his dastardly plan but the scene is set for Ninja Kid and helicopter guy to do battle another day. Because Ninja Kid is sort of a superhero in the making his disguise of a sock fashioned into a mask is more than enough to deem him unrecognisable to everyone who knows him, even when he's wearing the exact same clothes in Ninja mode and Nelson mode. However unbelievable this may seem, the precedence has already been established by many superheroes before him. Both Nelson and Kenny face their fears in this book and the writing is often so corny it's funny. Jeremy Ley's illustrations are magic! Some pages had two illustrations and there was only one page in the entire book that only had text. While Anh is one of my favourite kid's authors, Jeremy has easily become one of my favourite illustrators. There's humour in the pictures that matches that of the text, the expressions on the peoples' faces are easy to 'read' and what's happening in the book matches what's happening in the pictures. I need the third book now please! 'Coming soon' is way too long to wait!
