BOOK NOOK REVIEWS: Arree Chung

ninja

 

Title: Ninja!
Authors/Illustrators: Arree Chung
Publisher: Henry Holt & Co.
Ages: 4 to 8

 

Synopsis:

 

A ninja must be strong, courageous, and silent! He creeps through the house on a secret mission. There may be obstacles! But have no fear…a true ninja can overcome all challenges.

 

Why you should read it:

 

With only 137 words to the entire manuscript, you would think this would be an illustration driven book, but author-illustrator Arree Chung has managed to blend emotion and art into a delightful debut picture book. While reading this book I can just see a younger version of my own son donning sticky ninja gloves and silent ninja footwear before setting out on some fantastical adventure known only to the most fearless of ninjas. After reading Mr. Chung’s own story of how NINJA came to be, I can only be grateful this author was as courageous as his main character in persevering in his goal of becoming a children’s book author!
