Publisher's Summary

From the day she was born, Nina was a ninja baby. She obliterated her applesauce. She concealed herself at bath time. And she was training herself in advanced infiltration (of movie night). Nina wants to do everything by herself, until the day her parents bring home a Kung Fu Master (a baby brother). Now with a sibling, Nina will face the one thing she cannot do alone: be part of a family. With verve and humor, David Zeltser and Diane Goode tell the story of an unusually gifted child, and the family that is more than a match for her.

A humorous and clever take on new parenting as well as new siblings and the shifting balance of power. The illustrations are cute and provide an additional level of entertainment to the story.

This is sure to be a hit with all the ninja skills in this story! This is a great book about adjusting to a new sibling and talks through some of the feelings an older sibling might have, and ends on a great note of sibling love. My one concern is that this book could prompt some unwanted ninja behavior in kids reading it, as the older sibling can be a little destructive to things around her with her talents.
