Mosquitoes can bite all kinds of people—you, me, old ladies with blue hair, and even babies. But they can’t bite… NINJAS! Mosquitoes are quick, but ninjas are quicker. Mosquitoes are sneaky, but ninjas are sneakier. And mosquitoes might be hungry, but ninjas are . . . hungrier!!
With tons of summertime appeal, talented newcomer Jordan P. Novak's debut delivers bold illustrations, a wacky and hilarious story, and a wonderful twist at the end.
Jordan P. Novak tells a tale about mosquitoes facing off against ninjas, and how ninjas can constantly outsmart their winged foe. But there are moments that even ninjas will let their guards down, and Novak details those moments hilariously...
What's surprisingly great about Mosquitoes Can't Bite Ninjas, is that it's both quirky, but it's also a lateral tale about a fear of bugs. Novak's book appeals perfectly to young readers who may be fearful of bugs like mosquitoes, and details just how kids can be clever at evading them. But Novak smartly cautions that even the most quick-witted person can't always evade, and it's just something that happens.
It's a smart lesson, which will be appreciated by readers both young and old. With illustrations that are bright and cheerful, this is a must-read for any reader.
