Ninja Kid Book Review: Book 1 by Anh Do
Ninja Kid Book Review time! 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 Duck Creek.

I think Ninja Kid is a great fun chapter book series, perfect for kids just starting to get into chapter books. Kids will relate to Nelson who is 10 years old which is perfect for the 6 – 9 year old age bracket who can look up to the older protagonist. Nelson’s brother, Kenny is a fun character who is super skinny but eats and eats all day long. I recommend this book for kids around the 6 – 9 year old age group, but it’s a fun story for anyone, regardless of age.
Or if you’re looking for a great gift idea for someone who would love the Ninja Kid series by Ahn Do, then why not get a Ninja Kid box set of books 1-8
In addition to many of the physical books in the series, we also have the audio book for this. I’ts great for long car trips or for just relaxing and listening to the story as your imagination takes you away on an adventure written by Ahn Do
