The second book in the Ninja trilogy by Chris Bradford does not disappoint, there is plenty of action and a good fast moving storyline, as we have come to expect from this very popular children's author. In addition there are excellent illustrations by Sonia Leong.
Barrington Stoke publish such a variety of good books for reluctant readers and those with dyslexia. The chapters are short, the font easy to read, even the paper it is printed on is cream to minimise glare. They use the best authors in the publishing business, which is another plus.

Ninja: Death Touch is the 2nd book in the Trilogy and is a really great small read as this book isn't very long but makes a great edition to the first book and really keeps the story alive with its intriguing story unfolding and keeping true to the ninja adventure. A truly great and fun book to read. Here is the synopsis from the back of the book:
An old man stands over Taka's shaking body. He is the Grandmaster of the ninja clan. And he has just given Taka the Death Touch. . .
Taka is now a black belt and is learning the lethal arts of the ninja. He will need these skills to protect his clan. Lord Oda has sworn to destroy all ninja. As Oda's samurai army marches on their village, Taka must fight once more, and this time his world is at stake. . .
