Overview

Danny Dragonbreath knows girls are nothing but trouble. And the new foreign exchange student, Suki the Salamander, is the worst: she's reduced his best friend, Wendell, to a blithering, lovesick tadpole. But when a group of ninja frogs attempt to kidnap her, Danny knows he must step in. Danny and Wendell have watched lots of kung fu movies and can totally take on a bunch of ninja frogs. Or, um, so he hopes . . .

Both my 11 year old son and I will review: Mom's review: I thought this book was so great. Read with my son over summer to practice his book report skills, and we both enjoyed the storyline as well as the awesome pictures. I am actually excited to get the next book in the series (yeah, I'll admit I like a kid's book!). It really keeps your interest, chapter based so you can easily bookmark your spot, and not too thick to seem daunting to a child who would rather not be reading. A++ Son's review: This book was full of adventure and laughs. It made you want to read the book nonstop. You can read it over and over again because it is so fun to read. Plus, part of the pictures are in comic form.

Reason for Reading: Read aloud to my 9yo ds over the March Break.Summary: Danny has his mind full of imaginary samurai scenarios and watches ninja movies every night because of his current Japanese warfare obsession. Plus ninjas are cool! Then a Japanese exchange student comes to school for a while, Suki Salamander, and Wendell falls a bit in love with her which makes Danny nauseated. Until he finds out that frog ninjas are trying to kidnap Suki. So the three take off to visit Danny's great-grandfather, an expert in the field, who will be able to tell them how to rid themselves of these Ninjas and why they want Suki in the first place.Comments: I thought the first Dragonbreath book was so-so but my son enjoyed it very much and with a title of "Attack of the Ninja Frogs" we just had read the next one. I'll say I'm glad I did as this one was much more fun (for me) than the first. Obviously a cute story, definitely aimed at boys. Plenty of humour that had both of us laughing and ds was up out of his seat doing his ninja moves at the appropriate times; I even joined in with a few special ninja moves of my own!The artwork is cute and cartoony. The comic style portions of the book are interwoven throughout and are a part of the story, they can't be skipped. This style of book is becoming known as a hybrid part textual novel/part graphic novel. However, the graphic sequences are kept shorter than are found in the first book. They were kept more to short sequences on the bottom of the page or the occasional full page but were hardly any that ran for more than two pages. Overall, the book does come out to be profusely illustrated rarely showing two pages of plain text without illustration.The story is quite entrancing; what boy doesn't want to go join up with samurais against ninjas? While all this action is going on there is the back story of Wendall "liking" Suki and being embarrassed and not knowing how to act around her while Danny thinks girls have "cooties" and teases Wendall about having a girlfriend. By the end they both learn a lesson that perhaps doesn't extend to all girldom but has taught them that Suki is not an intimidating girl, no Suki is simply their friend. This whole storyline went way over my sons head though. He has no problems with girls. Except mushy stuff like kissing then he's grossed out but no kissing in this book. My son had never even heard the word "cooties" before and I didn't elaborate on it much, not necessary to tell him about all the rude cootie games and songs we played when I was a kid (LOL)At the end of the book we are tempted by an announcement that a third book will be coming soon and ds is already sure he wants continue with Danny in Dragonbreath:Curse of the Were-Wiener.

The Dragonbreath series is written for grade schoolers, but I¿ve followed the author¿s `Digger¿ strip on the web and seen some of her other art, so when I saw the library had this book, I picked it up. It¿s a well written and adorably illustrated (Vernon does both the writing and illustrating) adventure story. Danny Dragonbreath (who is, obviously, a dragon) is alarmed when his best friend, Wendell, becomes friends with a *girl*. As one may remember from grade school, girls and boys think the opposite sex have cooties at that age. But Suki, who is a Japanese salamander exchange student, is having trouble- she¿s being stalked by ninja frogs. Danny and Wendell must rescue Suki- but Suki isn¿t some shy, retiring princess who sits and waits for rescue; she¿s perfectly capable of fighting for herself. Despite being a series, the story is totally self contained. While some reference is made to things that happened in the book before, you don¿t have to know them to get what¿s happening. The ends are tied up neatly at the end of the book. There is nothing scary to the story; it¿s light, humorous adventure with goofy kids as the main characters that I suspect a lot of human kids can identify with.

Dragonbreath: Attack of the Ninja Frogs by Ursula Vernon is an incredibly quick MG read. Basically it's about this dragon named Danny who has a BFF named Wendell. Danny is enamoured by kung fu movies and ninjas. A new lizard, Suki, comes to town as part of an exchange program. Wendell gets a crush on Suki. Suki, however, is more than she appears, whether she likes it or not.To be quite honest, I think this book would resonate well with kids who loved Diary of a Wimpy Kid, except for unlike Greg, Danny seems to really care about his friends. As an adult, I laughed out loud at one scene of the book, where the great-grandfather dragon is meeting Wendell, and he keeps calling Wendell by the name of Wanda. I don't know, I'm really 12 on the inside I swear, since I kept cracking up. Aside from that, I would probably have giggled at the other stuff, had I been a bit younger.While I didn't exactly love this book, I do see it as being a wonderful book to push on the reluctant reading crowd.
