    5.0 out of 5 stars He loves 'em. February 7, 2000
    By A Customer
    Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
    Something about this series of books appeals enough to 2nd grade readers that they will read them on their own -- and ask for more. I read this book to make sure it was suitable for my son and I found it remarkably lacking in substance -- it's pretty much only the setting that changes from book to book -- I'm grateful I don't have to read this series aloud! However, my 7-year-old son reads a Tree House book in one or two sittings and his reading skills are greatly improved. He doesn't balk when I ask him to read aloud to his 3-year-old brother. Now the 3-year-old is crazy for them, too, and carries the books around and quotes passages from them. All I can say is: I wish I had stumbled on this Osborne chick's gold mine first.

    If you like ninjas, then you'll want to read Night of the Ninjas.
    If you like mice, you'll like this book, because Peanut is a mouse.
    The story keeps you guessing. becaue the mouse acts like a human.
    I liked Night of the Ninjas, because ninjas fight like martial
    artists.

    I liked the mouse and I liked that Jack and Annie turned into Ninjas. This book has a lot of action in it, and I learned that the Samauri were ancient Japan fighters

    I think this book was so cool! I would really want to go with Jack and Annie on their journey. My eyes poped when I saw that mighty samurai and when the ninja master said: "use nature, be nature,and follow nature."

    2.0 out of 5 stars Historical accuracy? December 30, 2013
    Format:Paperback
    This book is very typical of the Magic Tree House series. Youngsters Jack and Annie travel to distant lands and times in service to Morgan le Fey, who controls the tree house which magically appears in their backyard. On each adventure the pair are supposed to retrieve some artifact or bit of knowledge to help Morgan, who in this case seems to have mysteriously disappeared. The books are organized into groups of four because Jack and Annie always have to find four things to complete their mission. In this case, the four things all begin with the letter "M".

    The writing, while not terribly involved or gripping, is basically appropriate for the target audience - young readers just venturing into chapter books, perhaps ages 6 through 9. My 7-year-old enjoys the books, I think largely because she's sort of taken aback with herself that she actually can read and understand them.

    My concern with this book concerns the topic of ninjas vs. samurai. Like all Magic Tree House books, it does not delve too deeply into the actual history of ninjas, but what it does portray is very stereotypically binary good vs. evil and not exactly accurate. In the book, Jack and Annie encounter two ninjas who take them to the ninja master. The ninja master tells them that they must get away from the samurai, who are apparently the "bad guys". We learn absolutely nothing about the apparent feud between the groups or why the samurai are evil. In historical reality, however, while neither the ninjas nor the samurai were completely good or completely evil, the samurai are more associated with honor and nobility.

    5.0 out of 5 stars its a great book December 7, 2001
    Format:Paperback
    If you like ninjas then you'll want to read night of the ninjas.

    If you are a fraidy cat you might like Jack and if you like to imagine,then you will like Annie. If you like mice, then you will like Peanut in the story.
    The story keeps you guessing because the mouse acts like a human.
    I liked Night of the Ninjas, because it's exciting and you will like it, too.

    4.0 out of 5 stars Night of the Ninjas (Magic Tree House, No. 5) November 24, 2007
    Format:Paperback
    ISBN 0679863710 - Books in series for kids aren't new - Nancy Drew, Trixie Belden, the Bobbsey Twins.. right on through to the Babysitters Club and Goosebumps - they've been out there for generations. This series, however, does seem to have a slightly younger target audience than most and that, in my opinion, is a very good thing. The younger they're hooked, the harder it is to give up the habit, and reading is a habit you want to encourage.

    Jack and Annie are headed home from the library, wondering where Morgan and the Magic Tree House are and when she and it might return. Annie runs off into the forest and sees that it has returned! The only question is - where's Morgan? A note is found, along with a mouse, and the kids have the tree house whisk them away to Japan, sometime in the 14th-17th centuries, where they are meet ninjas and flee from samurai warriors and gather the first of four items they will need to rescue their friend. They return home in time for dinner, but they still haven't found Morgan!

    I have a few problems with the book - for one, the kids go to Japan and meet some ninjas who speak fluent English. Or the kids unknowingly speak fluent Japanese. Either way, they're able to communicate without trouble. Jack makes small notes as he goes, like "ninjas were warriors in old Japan", but there's little effort made to delve too deeply into anything informative. Not that every book in the world needs to be educational, but it feels very much like a missed opportunity. Last is the obvious fact that book #5 comes nowhere near being complete, as Morgan is still missing.
