My grandma's a ninja book review

"My Grandma's a Ninja" by Todd Tarpley and illustrated by Danny Chatzikonstantinou is a awesome book about a little boy named Ethan who has a grandma who is a ninja. One would think this is the coolest thing ever. She is the perfect person to teach you and your friends karate, how to move stealthily, and secret ninja tricks. When your grandma is a ninja all the other kids will love and admire you and popularity will abound. That is until being a ninja goes awry.

The illustrations were rich, soft, and beautiful. They definitely will draw readers in from the start. I found that they added a touch of whimsy to the pages, what could have been dark due to the fighting element was very fun looking. The drawings were so cute, I found myself eager to see what would show up next. This is an element that I believe children will adore.

This was a cute book. I would highly recommend it to other early childhood readers and teachers. Fun, action packed, and emotion filled. Having a Ninja for a grandma can be fun, but not all the time. Ethan quickly finds that out. Great lessons this book teaches on appreciating what you have even if it isn't normal. I found this book to be very well written and enjoyable. I think it will fast become a favorite with young readers.

Rise of the King Book Review

This one was so good. I think that it is the best one in the Bird Shifter Series yet. Lazar and Sabrina are so perfect for each other. Sheltered and protected by her uncle Gardelle, who she doesn't even know is a bird shifter, Sabrina keeps dreaming of flying. She is in for a pleasant awakening when she falls and is rescued by the literal man of her dreams. Lazar is more than ready to be everything she wants and more, if only he can convince her and Gardelle of that. Will they be able to fight for their love and rise to throne, read this juicy tale to see. Roth definitely hit out of the park with this one. Spicy, fun, and action packed.

Master of the Hunt Review

Sexy, fun, and exciting are the words to describe this book. I loved it from the start, Aeson was such a delicious character. I enjoyed this story from beginning to end. There was interesting twists, action, and passion. I would highly recommend it. Aeson and Shelby had a awesome love story. I loved the connection between Aeson and Shelby's father being a shifter. Two thumbs up!
