My name is Chase Cooper, and I'm a 6th grade ninja. It's my first day at a different school and the only person I know is my cousin, Zoe (but she might be a little too cool for me). I was just another scrawny kid until a group of ninjas recruited me into their clan. It was a world of trouble I wasn't prepared for, which is why I kept this diary (or "chronicle" as my dad wo ...more

Ninja! With lots of ninja actions in the school world, this book hooked me for a whole week and was a major part of my reading life.

Chase Cooper just started a new school and met his cousin Zoe. Chase wanted to be friends with a group of ninja, but Zoe wouldn't agree to follow him. So, the ninja played a mean trick on her and it was Chase's decision to make.

The pro of this book is that it's for everyone who is starting a new school. There are some tips in there to help you and tell a likely stor

This book/series has taken the third grade (boys) by storm this fall. WillZ read the first three this summer and started passing them on to his friends. Now there are four boys all sharing and trading these books and they are consuming them. Reading them non-stop, asking each other when they can get the next one and so on. For the 8-9 year old boy set this series is a hit.

This is a very simple, easy read for kids. The story is somewhat entertaining, but not terribly complex or original.

A funny, lighthearted story about what it means to be a "real man". Any middle grade students will love this!

Just by reading the first few pages I got into reading it, like a snap
The book is about guilt and responsibility. The main character is Chase Cooper, the new kid in a school. Chase will ultimately have a tough decision to make. While Chase, his cousin and another boy are walking, the other boy gets pulled into the woods and into a hole. Chase and his cousin jump in the hole, which leads to an empty cave, so they can rescue the boy. Then, a clan of ninjas appears out of nowhere. The ninjas invite Chase and his cousin to join the clan, but Chase and his cousin first ...more

Read my full review at Nevermind the Furthermore.

Diary of a 6th Grade Ninja is the first in a series of books by self-published author Marcus Emerson. My son, who is in the fourth grade, received the first book for Christmas in 2015. He's already finished six in the series, loaned them to his cousin, and is asking for more. Below is his review of book one:

"It’s a great book with lots of action and fun. Sometimes it’s even funny! The best book from Marcus Emerson is what I’d say. The book is not

Recommends it for: kids who enjoy Diary of a Wimpy Kid
2.5 Stars - A good premise that didn't quite follow through on its potential. Those who enjoy the Wimpy Kid series will most likely enjoy this and I wouldn't have a problem recommending it to middle school aged readers. But there were too many weird things going on for me to really enjoy it.

Suddenly Zoe stepped into the woods, joining us. Her faced looked like she had been slapped around by the dirt fairy. It even looked like her lip was bloody. Man, had she gotten into a fight since I last saw

I'm going to be teaching 6th grade and I was thinking of reading this book aloud to my students. It's a cute story, but one I think I will leave for them to read on their own if they want. It's a story about friendship and family and standing up to a bully. It's not too serious of a story - it has it's quirky moments - and it's probably quite entertaining for a 10-11 yr old.

I loveed this book cos it had a gripping plot and kept me too the end of my seat. I would consider this book to adventurous people. It doesn't have much funny parts so I wouldn't read it if u want a funny story

I found the writing in this clunky, and it was pretty implausible (that kids could be in woods during school for chunks of time, in ninja gear) but it was mildly entertaining and has a great premise.

I loved it

It didn't seem like a long story because I didn't focus on how long it was I focused on in all the expression and thought put in the book
