Review: Jack B. Ninja by Tim McCanna and Stephen Savage

Pub date June 26, 2018

Jack B. Ninja! Jack, be quick! Jack, jump over the bamboo stick! Secret mission starts tonight. Hide in shadow, out of sight.
In this imaginative ninja fantasy inspired by the classic nursery rhyme "Jack Be Nimble," cheer on Jack as he sneaks over castle walls, swims through hidden tunnels, and uncovers a secret treasure -- all while avoiding detection. But when Jack unwittingly springs a trap in the middle of his mission, will he be able to use his ninja skills to escape the bandits and make it back home?

Grace and I read this on our trip to Albuquerque. She enjoyed 'finding' the ninja on each page - not hard, but she felt smart each time she spotted him! The action-packed rhyming couplets make for a fun read-aloud, and Savage's illustrations are adorably simple. I can see them gracing a nursery wall or two!

Great addition to any home, classroom or library!
