Danny Dragonbreath knew girls were trouble. But the new foreign exchange student, Suki the Salamander, is beyond trouble. Not only has she reduced his best friend, Wendell, to a blithering, lovesick tadpole, but she?s apparently the object of an elaborate ninja frog kidnapping plot. Danny is never one to pass up an adventure (especially one involving ninja frogs), and so h ...more

I'm pretty irritated with this book, mostly in that the author is a woman and you'd think she knew better, but alas. Vernon plays right into the hands of every lazy, stupid, boring trope there is about young boys, which is a shame because she can be incredibly clever and snarkily funny.

Still, HOW COULD YOU BE SEEN TALKING TO GIRLS?! THEY ARE ALIENS. SO CRAZY. WITH COOTIES. Also, school is so uncool, and science is so boring it's more fun to make stuff up than learn. And if your best friend wears

I love Ursula's writing - she's such a hoot! The Dragonbreath series are great, quick reads for young readers, and should particularly be enjoyed by boys. I love the random facts interspersed through the story and Urusla's sense of humour really appeals to me. She's an awesome artist too - and the quirky illustrations interspersed with the text really bring the story to life.

In this adventure, daredevil Danny Dragonbreath and his sensible friend Wendall take the bus to Mythological Japan in an a

Cute story. Fun characters. The green/white/black illustrations won me over on page one. This is a fun series for young boys, and the tom girls out there.

"Then you won't last five minutes. Those frogs can do things with a shuriken that would curl your toes."

Ignoring the fact these books are written very in the aspect of what being a kid is like, girls are scary and have cooties, and boys who are smart are nerds(which many people might complain about, but this book nails kid behavior well).

Another good read.
Fun, likely to entertain the 8 - 10 year old set. I love the illustrations and the distinct personalities of the 3 protagonists. However, I agree with another reviewer that the vocabulary and the illustrations and cover are a mismatch - the cover and pictures look like this is for early chapter book readers, but the vocabulary and sentence structure is often fairly sophisticated.

I didnt think I'd love the second one more than the first but it was everything. King fu fights, reincarnation, frog ninjas and more. on this Adventure, Danny and his friend Wendell try and help their exchange student friend, Suki avoid Ninja Frogs and visit Danny's Great Grandad in Fuedal Japan. I loved every minute of it. please read it if you have the opportunity.

When I saw this book I just had to read it. I loved the frogs (which my mom is afraid of) and them being ninjas was awesome and SO COOL!! I will need to get the first book as well as any others that are out!

But if you love ninjas or frogs this one is for you!

This is another fun book to read by Ursula Vernon. Friendship, adventure, and nonfiction facts about ninjas and Japanese culture are interjected in fun ways. I enjoyed the illustrations throughout. This author's sense of humor shines through and I highly recommend this book for both girls and boys.

Far Better Than The First

I actually enjoyed this book. The first book wasn't very good in my opinion but this volume is sweet. Our little friend has fantasies about medieval Japan and meets a pretty Japanese exchange student. Are they just friends or does he have a crush?

The book I am reviewing is called Danny Dragonbreath Attack of the Ninja Frogs. It is by Ursula Vernon. I would give this book 4 stars. This book is about Danny a dragon and his friends Wendell and Suki fighting against a band of ninjas who want to kidnap suki and make her the ninja queen. Going into more detail, the book is about Danny, Wendell and Suki going to mythological japan to see Danny’s great great grandad to see why ninjas were trying to capture Suki. it turns out Suki is a reincarnat

Dragonbreath: Attack of the Ninja Frogs is the second book in the Dragonbreath series by Ursula Vernon. Vernon uses her traditional green, black and white comic like illustrations from the first book, but this time also includes red to enhance the color spectrum.
In this book Danny Dragonbreath is obsessed samurais, swords and kung fu scenes. Like the first book it starts with Danny daydreaming, this time about being “Lord Dragonbreath Ruler of an Ancient Smurai Clan” and how him and his troops w

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-gran

Attack of the Ninja Frogs is a book that I think is great for comic book readers, or people like me that love books that are easy to read, but action packed. This book is about a boy named Danney that is a normal kid at a normal school. Except for the fact that he is a dragon, unlike the lizards and geckos at his school. One day at the bus stop before school, he sees his best friend Wendell talking to an exchange student from Japan named Suki. They realize that they all have many of the same int ...more

Danny is appalled when his best friend Wendell loans the Japanese exchange student his comic book-- she's a GIRL and they could both get cooties! And what if Wendell sits on the bus or eats lunch with Suki instead of him? Once Danny finds out that Suki is being followed and attack by Ninja frogs, however, his tune changes and the trio head to Mythical Japan on the bus to consult Danny's great grandfather about how to stop the Spurtongue clan from kidnapping Suki and making her their queen.

Recommends it for: children who enjoy reading graphic novels
Part-graphic novel, part chapter book, this is an entertaining and somewhat educational story about an adolescent anthropomorphic dragon and his iguana pal. It's the second book in the Dragonbreath series by Ursula Vernon.

We borrowed this book from our local library as an ebook and our girls really liked reading the full-color book on a tablet. The story is a quick read and the graphic novel-like scenes are woven throughout the story in a seamless way. This would be a great book for a child who

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 op

This book got my attention because my nephews are five and ten years-old and love to read. Although this is just the book for them, I enjoyed it too! Danny is a typical boy with a vivid imagination, a love of kung fu movies and he happens to be a dragon. When his best friend Wendall falls for the new girl Suki, Danny is more than a little annoyed. But she's not like the other girls and when an attempt is made by ninja frogs to kidnap her Danny and Wendall jump into action.

Enter the dragon...has taken on new meaning! Danny the Dragonbreath is off to do the unthinkable: rescue a lady salamander from the clutches of the Ninja Frogs! Why unthinkable? 'Cos he doesn't like the idea of girls for some odd reason. Ask any kid and maybe he'll explain it better than I can. His fave buddy gecko is crushing on Suki, a foreign exchange lizard student who loves martial arts films more than the boys (coff coff) do! OH THE HORROR! A GIRL IS BETTER THN THE BOYS!

Like the first Dragonbreath book this one is a mix of novel and graphic novel. The graphics are cute and expressive. You don’t have to read the first one but there are references to the first book in this one that are more fun if you know what they mean. I also like the continuity between this one and the first one. Not just the same characters but that both start with Danny’s fantasy, that there is a magic bus system that goes anywhere you need it to go (even mythical Japan), and that Danny has ...more

Ninja frogs are following Suki the foreign exchange student (who Wendell does NOT consider his girlfriend). Danny and Wendell jump in to help Suki get to the bottom of these tricky shadows with a little help from Danny's great-great-grandfather in mythical Japan.

The 2nd book of the Dragonbreath series continues to build on the first book. I love the bus system Vernon has imagined, which has no problem with impossible stops and causes Wendell no end of questions. The humor continues to be spot o
