Cool picture book with my name! This is a picture book based on the classic Jack be Nimble nursery rhyme. In this book, Jack is a brave ninja. My name is Jack and I want to be a ninja too! The character from this story, Jack dives into the garden pool and breaks into a bandit cave. He’s on a mission to find a stolen treasure chest. He meets a bandit crew and narrowly escapes. It turns out the bandits are not who they seem. It was a little confusing to me. I liked the fact that the book is based on Jack and he’s a cool ninja. I didn’t really understand the ending though. The pictures were great, and the rhymes made sense. I liked it and would recommend it for kids ages 4-6. I give it four stars. Review by Jack H., age 6, New Mexico Mensa
