Book Review: The Boy Who Cried Ninja by Alex Latimer

Book received at no charge to facilitate my review.

Tim can't get anybody to believe him. When he explains that the Ninja ate the last piece of cake or that the astronaut took his dad's hammer, he is sent outside to rake leaves and to think about his lies. But when he decides to tell real lies and own up to all of the trouble created the giant squid, tea drinking pirate and time-traveling monkey, his parents assign him more chores to think about the bad things he has done.

Poor Time just can't win.

Instead he conjures up a fabulous idea. He writes a letter inviting the band of miscreants to a party at his house. When they actually show up, his parents have no choice but to apologize to Tim. The modern, stylized characters are sure to illicit giggles from the young reader. A humorous twist on a classic theme. Clever and fun for the ninja lover.
