Ninja Bunny - Jennifer Gray Olson

Rule #1. You must always work alone.
Rule #2. You must be super sneaky, especially in the most dangerous of situations.
Rule #3. A super awesome ninja must: possess incredible strength, achieve invisibility, master the skill of climbing, gain the ability to fly….

Cute, action-packed, and a great story about friendship, Jennifer Gray Olson's Ninja Bunny will find a good range of readers, from young to old. The colours and illustration style are bold and will capture the interest of young audiences, especially those with a keen eye. Much of the charm of Ninja Bunny comes from the disconnect between text and image, often leading to moments of humor and examinations of strength, size, and perspective.

I like this book a lot, and found myself having a great time reading it multiple times in one day. While Ninja Bunny wants to be on his own and desires to be stealthy and unique, he slowly realizes the effects of this isolation and the ways in which team work can sometimes be a much better plan than working alone. The use of font style and colour is also quite appealing. Although words are scant, they convey much in their tone and juxtaposition with the illustrations.
