Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 3–6—Based on a LEGO set introduced in January 2011, this title follows the adventures of four young ninjas, Jay, Cole, Zane, and Kai, under the tutelage of Sensei Wu. In this first book in the series, they battle the two lords of the Underworld, Samukai and Garmadon. These villains have a wager on—if Samukai defeats the young ninjas and their sensei, he will rule Ninjago and the Underworld. In addition to protecting the four golden weapons (special collectors items in the LEGO set), the ninjas have another reason to defeat Samukai and Garmadon—Samukai's skeleton army holds Kai's sister hostage. The illustrations in this marketing tie-in are cartoon worthy, but the dialogue feels halting and the content is gimmicky—the ninjas must learn "Spinjitzu." Still, younger readers and LEGO fans could enjoy this new addition to the graphic-novel world.—Sarah Knutson, American Canyon Middle School, CA

    The sample does not include ONE page of text. How is looking at

    The sample does not include ONE page of text. How is looking at a cover, title page, a blank page and an advertising page helpful to someone trying to decide if this book is appropriate for their child?

    Worth purchasing

    My daughter is an Ninjago fan, and even though the sample didn't show the comic pages, we took a chance and purchased it. She loves it! The last page was 61, so you are definitely getting enough content.
