My 8 1/2 year old Ninjago fan was beyond excited, and quickly read it and then continued to gravitate towards it for multiple re-reads. I tried to read Tomb of the Fangpyre and did get through it, but honestly, my mind couldn’t keep up with the story, not because of the complexity, but because of my lack of LEGO Ninja knowledge and interest.
There are multiple squares per page, so though it’s a short book, the story isn’t short and simple. The drawings are great and the colors are bright.
The purpose of this review is basically to alert you that these are out there. I didn’t know about them, and for my son who loves both Ninjago and graphic novels, this was a fun treat for him, so I’m sure there are plenty of you out there who might be looking for a treat for your child, especially in this travel-heavy holiday season (I find that a new book or two can make a short or long drive or plane trip much easier and more exciting).
You might find reviewer Jennifer humming along to the Ninjago theme song. It’s true. Read other true confessions at her Snapshot blog.
