Book: Ninja and Bunny's Great Adventure
Author: Kara S. Tyler; Illustrations by: Sarah Pacetti
Publisher: Evolved Publishing
Publication Date: 15 December 2015


Ninja and Bunny's Great Adventure by Kara S. Tyler is a fun, magical, adventurous children's picture-book story.

The story is about two sisters, the older one Ruthie tells her younger sister Marian that they have to go save the fairies. Marian, thinking it's one of her sister's make-believe games, dresses up as Bunny and follows her into the woods near their house.

There, Ruthie shows Marian how to enter fairyland and together they save the fairy queen.

I was surprised by and later liked the reversal in roles at the beginning of the story, where Marian appears to be wiser than her older sister.

"For a moment, Marian wondered if Ruthie remembered this was just a game."

I particularly liked the author's take on fear and how standing up to it will banish it away. Also, how sometimes prolonging our fears may turn them into something they are not.

"There was nothing to be afraid of…but running away made it seem so much scarier."

The pictures, by illustrator Sarah Pacetti, are beautifully done and portray the wording well; the colours are vivid as are the characters of Ninja and Bunny.

"Magic wrapped around them, transforming them into their fairy selves, making them truly Ninja and Bunny."

Speaking about her story at the end of the book, author Kara S Tyler reveals that the "The Adventures of Ninja and Bunny first came about because of a fabulous conversation overheard between Kara's two children during a very long car ride. The two young girls spent over two hours debating the various aspects of Fae politics and social structure. Without realising it, the girls were building a world so read, Ray Bradbury would be proud."

Overall rating: 5 stars
