What would you do if an army of giant spiders were coming to get you? Thankfully, you don’t have to do anything because Nelson’s got it covered.
Nelson was just a typical nerdy kid. He had no idea he was from a line of ninja’s. His dad was a ninja, but his dad had vanished without a trace a long time ago. On the morning of his 10th birthday, Nelson trips out of bed but does a miraculous flip and lands on his feet — something he could never do. Something had changed. His mum and ultra cool granny had been expecting this change.
Nelson doesn’t quite feel ready to fight crime as a ninja yet. But that’s a great time to train. He doesn’t have success straight away with his training, but he persists and progresses through the training and is boosted by some super-awesome granny inventions and a ninja outfit disguise which is not exactly high tech. (It’s a football sock with eye holes cut out of it.)
The first Tyrano-spider attack raises curiosity and questions and Grandma reveals to Nelson about some of the his ninja father’s work. Soon, an army of spiders comes and it’s up to Nelson to save the world.
