Brendon and Carson's Ninja Adventures Rise of Bad Boys Inc by Rod P. Stoner is a puzzle book for boys (and girls) who like ninjas and martial arts tales. The book contains a basic story that explains who each of the ninja characters are, including some of their basic weapons that they use. It follows a simple storyline that engages the reader and makes them interact in order to move the story forward. The book includes various puzzles and brain teasers such as mazes, memory games and other fun activities that will keep children entertained for hours. I feel that this will engage children more as it is difficult to get some children to read or to at least enjoy it and this book offers them challenges that will keep them hooked.
Rod P. Stoner has laid out Brendon and Carson's Ninja Adventures Rise of Bad Boys Inc. well, with scroll designs on the pages laying out the various tasks to be completed. The artwork is simple but easily distinguishable as it is required to tell the 'characters' apart as you move through the story.
The dialogue is encouraging and child friendly. It is not unlike a written form of some brain teaser video games available on the wii or ds. And at a fraction of the price. The book ends with 'to be continued.' More adventures would be welcomed by children and I believe this is the start of an exciting series that will continue to be popular with children between the ages of 8-11.
