I thought this was just fine, but not great. The three main characters were interesting, but the book didn't suck me in. Maybe I was looking for something just a little bit edgier. There's no doubt that Smith can write...perhaps fifth and sixth graders would like it much more than eighth grade and above.

This book can be used effectively in language arts, science, math, social studies, music, photography, acting. The author presents the intellectuality of his characters from three convincing point-of-view. THE NINJAS, PIRANHAS AND GALILEO has love, intrigue, and humor. The Author's Note, however, shouldn't be read by the students until they try the plant experiment and have a court hearing.
