Ninja by Chris Bradford (Young Samurai author)

I bought this as a gift for a reluctant reader I know, the book is designed to help readers who may have problems with reading ( dyslexia,& ADD ). He loved it and has reread it more than twice!

This story is fast paced, interesting and never gets boring. If you're a fan of martial arts this is a nice quick treat!

Highly reccomended!
