It's about bones. They sneak attack on the village and were hiding in trees. It's about Jay and they find a bullet that shot through the house. Their friend was really a bad guy too.

read this one with my son. He loved it. I felt it was choppy and weird. Maybe I just needed to know the lego ninja background first.

My son loved this story. We read it together and it was definitely cute.

Another fabulous read for fans of the hit lego series, Ninjago. We loved getting to learn more about Jay and enjoyed reading about some his and the team's adventures. Like the other three books in this series, the story starts off with an entry about his Ninja from Sensei Wu's journal and than leads right into the first of the two stories featured in this book.

The first book is a short read called Dragon's Roar which is taken from one of the episodes that's aired on TV where the young ninja's m

When reading a kids' book about ninja (even ninja of the Lego variety), one expects there to be a lot of action and intrigue. This one focuses more on intrigue, as the plot centers on a mystery rather than on combat. I wanted to like the mystery element, and the emphasis on problem-solving and critical thinking, but it could have been handled better. The characters were not terribly compelling, the stakes weren't high enough, the clues were a little impenetrable given the target audience, and th ...more

I think this book was pretty good, because this is the first Ninjago book I have read, but personally, I know I have a lot of friends that really enjoyed them.
When I read the first page, I thought, 'This is pretty good. I`m going to like this book!'. And I really, really did. It`s amazing what you think, and then it comes true!
Jay and Kai are out in town buying supplies, then suddenly, the supply store collapses. All clues lead to it being them. But it isn`t!
I`ll leave the ending for you to find

I read this book with my two boys. Jay and Kai arrive in a town to purchase supplies. They fight with the vendor and that night his store is attacked and he is killed. Jay and Kai are accused of killing him because the poles were knocked down by a kick from a ninja. It was really cute and the boys love the ninjas.

Kinda boring compared to the others I've read so far, and it feels like Jay doesn't get as much character development either.

“Hey, dragon!" Jay said loudly. The dragon opened one eye. "How can you tell if you have a dragon in your bathroom? The door won't close! How long was the dragons vacation? Four days and three knights! How about this one? Three ninja and a dragon walk into a dojo, and--"

The Lightning Dragon swiped it's massive tail, knocking Jay off his feet.

"That's the worst thing about dragons," muttered Jay, standing back up. "They don't know good jokes when they hear them.”
