NINJA NANI & THE BUMBLING BURGLARS

ABOUT THE BOOK

Who’s yo’ granny?

Deepu wants to watch his favourite show, Ninja Dragon Morimori, but someone mean and scary is hogging the TV! He is grappling with his cranky old grandmother for the remote control when ZZZZAP!

Suddenly Nani has super ninja powers and is swinging from the ceiling and backflipping across the living room! When Nani disappears out the window, Deepu has to follow.

Will Deepu survive this crazy night? Will he end up in a smelly beast’s belly or the little boys’ jail? Or will he be taken hostage by the bumbling burglars?

“A lip-smacking treat” —Chef Dalmakahani, Daily Karela

SNAPSHOT REVIEW

  • A cracking tale starring a fed-up little boy and his ninja-powered granny.
  • The mix of text and graphics to tell the story is wonderfully done.
  • Lavanya Karthik writing is hilarious, and the illustrated sections complement the writing beautifully.
  • Extra points for the relationship between young Deepu and his grandmother, which goes from irritation and indifference to mutual respect.

CONCLUSION

A thrill-a-minute fantasy-adventure story that will delight any ninja-loving young reader.

“For a teacher or librarian faced with dozens of books to read, a good book review website is as essential as maps are for geographers.”

“Indian children’s books rarely get the kind of publicity they deserve in the popular or social media. Websites like Goodbooks plug the gap by not letting a single Indian children’s book of merit slip through the cracks. Most people would not even know about the books available in the market if not for a resource like this.”
