Dragonbreath:Attack of the Ninja Frogs Ursula Vernon

Dragonbreath: Attack of the Ninja Frogs by Ursula Vernon

I love this series. The first book Dragonbreath came out earlier this year. After, I finished it, I was like okay, the store is going to need at least five more copies. Dragonbreath has been one of my go to books this year.

It's perfect for fans of Diary of a Wimpy Kid. Its a great holiday add on to the Diary of the Wimpy Kid . Or if a child has read all the Wimpy Kid books, or you don't know which one they're on get them Dragonbreath. Trust Me. My review

The Second book in the series - Attack of the Ninja Frogs comes out in Feburary. My expectations were very high. I was not disappointed. I loved it. Danny still can't breath fire. This time he's really into Ninja movies.

Danny's best friend Wendell has a crush on the Japanese exchange student, Suki. One day Danny and Wendell come across Suki as she defends herself against a Ninja Frog attack.

She has no idea why Ninja Frogs keep trying to kidnap her. The three go visit Danny's great grandfather an expert in Japanese mythology. Sure enough he tells them what needs to be done to stop the attacks.

Danny and Wendell continue to make a great friendship duo. Danny teases Wendell for liking Suki. At first Danny wants nothing to do with Suki because she's a girl. In the end Danny must admit Suki is one cool manga reading, ninja frog fighting, animal saving chick.

Attack of the Ninja Frogs is laugh out loud funny with spot on illustrations. The author includes some cool ninja facts, that fit in seamlessly with the story. Ages 8up. Scheduled release date is Feb. 4.

Thanks, Doret! Always looking for something else to recommend to the kids who love Diary of a Wimpy Kid (especially since the library list for the new one is long right now!).

Thanks! My son loves Diary of a Wimpy Kid and I'm always looking for books with a similar density.
