My Nana is a Ninja

YOUNG, Damon (text) Peter Carnavas (illus.) My Nanna is a Ninja UQP, 2014 unpaged $24.95 ISBN 9780702250095 SCIS 1647193

My four-year-old co-reviewer loved this book and wanted it read every night.  It details how different Nannas can be and the various things they do.  But what is it like to have a Nanna for a ninja?  Is she quieter?  Does she only dress in black?

This vividly illustrated laugh-aloud book is abundant with rich, descriptive language that allows the story to flow beautifully.  My co-reviewer sat repeating the story to himself.  This is one of those books that will entice younger children to read and will be a hit with children who love the idea of nannas with throwing stars.
