Secret Ninja Spies: Tokyo Surprise – Alex Ko
She’s high-kicking. She’s power-punching. She’s back-flipping. Quick as a cat. Silent as a shadow. She’s over 70? When twelve-year-old twins Josh and Jessica visit their old gran in Tokyo things aren’t quite what they expected, for starters her flat is the most high-tech place they’ve ever been outside Dixon’s. Suffice to say it makes them a little suspicious. But when their friend, popstar Kiki, is kidnapped and the twins set out to investigate they find themselves aided by a mysterious hooded ninja. But who is this shadowy crimefighter? None other than their gran! She’s been busting crime for as long as she can remember as Tokyo’s secret ninja agent. But can the twins and their granny piece together the kidnap mystery and rescue Kiki in time? The first in the high-kicking martial arts adventure series filled with crimefighting action!
This is a book about two grandchildren Jessica and Josh who lead a double life as ninja spies. When ging to visit their Gran they meet a famous pop-star called Kiki, who suddenly gets kidnapped! They try to do the right thing and rescue her but this leads to a book full of adventure, with lots of twists and turns. It’s an exciting book and keeps you turning the pages to see what happens next. It’s quite easy to read. I think it be would suitable for girls and boys who like action books.
