I have read a book called NINJAGO by Greg Farshtey. This book is a graphic novel. It is this genre because it is a comic book. It take place in Ninja go. The main character is the ninja crew.

Summary: This is a graphic novel about the Lego Ninjago series. The focus of this book is the argument between the "bad guys" of the world of Ninjago.

Appeal Characteristics: LEGOS! SUPER POPULAR, 2012 popular pic, for young boys at MCPL, adventure, NINJAS, humor, friendship

That being said it was a cute adventure...These authors wrote Bionicle and Hardy Boys graphic novels so they are very good at what they do.

The book was very good in my opinion. It has a great story, and matches all the characteristics on Ninjago. The illustrations are great as well, and really help tell the story.
