" A helpful, well meaning but somewhat bumblingly exuberant ninja tries to help at a pizza shop. What follows is a sort of ninja based Amelia Bedilia story. My son enjoyed it and wanted to read more, making a long review unnecessary - it encouraged a young reader, so mission very much accomplished. " said.

" You've gotta love Moby Shinobi. He tries to help, his heart is in the right pace, but he often ends up just bungling things up. This time Moby visits Papa Peppy and learns how to work in a pizza restaurant. Will he succeed in the end??The art is bright, colorful, and hey, the pizzas look tasty. The rhymes don't feel forced, and are fun and catchy. Recommended! " said.

"I mean, it's nice that the kid tried to help - even though he has no sense of proportionality. "Cut the pizzas, you say? Let me SLICE EVERYTHING IN SIGHT WITH MY SWORD!" And I have a sneaking suspicion that just because he managed to break the lock at the end... there's still a huge mess in the kitchen and a whole bunch of angry customers with food all over them.

I'd make sure any kids reading this knew that it was funny in the book to make a huge mess, but to definitely not try to help mom and dad in the kitchen with any ninja skills.

" This is one of those learn-to-read types that are given since they are really simple to follow, barely use any words that beginning readers may not know how to pronounce and usually end up repeating some part of the book at some other point in time. As a result these books have very simple plots that won't attract adult readers or keep the eyes of young readers once they outgrow them.

In this particular one the young Ninja boy is out around town and showing off his skills to the reader when a desperate call ends up trying to get him to help in making pizza at a short-staffed pizzeria. From there he is passed around to different jobs when all he does is to make messes, cause confusion and anger as well as ruins everything in sight. Will he ever find a place in a pizza shop for his wild skills? And who would ever hire a minor anyway to work at a restaurant or to even wield sharp weapons?

The plot helps to separate the book from many others in its class while helping to diversify the reading audience that may be interested by the subject. But to me the plot was an overused one and the ending in looking back is very overworked so it is best to use it for the purpose that it was wrote for then move on.

"Moby Shinobi takes a job working for Papa Peppy's Pizza, in hopes that he can assist with the business. However, this little ninja gets so eager with his responsibilities that he makes a mess of everything. Pizza dough is flying, tables are cut in half rather than slices, and customers receive their orders plastered to their faces. In the end, Moby Shinobi has to accept that the pizza parlour life may not be for him... until a special job comes to the attention of Papa Peppy. Neo loves pizza and ninjas, so this seemed like the perfect book to allow him to read to me. He worked his way through it, chopping words in half and kicking silent letters aside. How improved his reading is getting... it makes a dad proud." said.
