Here be another ninja book I received for my birthday. This one came from my sister and is a children's book aimed at a readership (listnership) aged around the 3-year old mark.
"The Boy Who Cried Ninja" is good fun and is wonderfully illustrated. We have the ninja himself, who can kick a cake off a plate straight into his mouth, a time travelling monkey, an astronaut, and several other chracters besides who are all upto various mischiefs. The only drawback is that it's a quick read, coming in at about five minutes if read and looked at slowly. Still, cracking fun for kids and adults with a fertile imagination.
