“In this third book in the Ninja! series, Maxwell pits his ninja skills against Santa Claus“– Provided by publisher.
I’ve read enough Christmas books over the years that it makes me very happy to find one that is unique. Hurray! It’s not every day that you find out that Santa is (secretly) a ninja. However, it makes total sense. How else could Santa sneak in and out of houses without being detected?
And that’s not all! The protagonist of the book is a creative boy who used his critical thinking skills to try to figure out how to catch Santa. I’m thankful that he didn’t achieve his goal, but appreciate his well thought out attempt.
My favorite sentence was: “The Ninja Claus is sneaky, quick, clever and kind.” That also describes a more traditional Santa.
This cute, humorous book was fun to read!
