Diary of a 6th Grade Ninja by Marcus Emerson

Diary of a 6th Grade Ninja is the first in a series of books by self-published author Marcus Emerson. My son, who is in the fourth grade, received the first book for Christmas in 2015. He's already finished six in the series, loaned them to his cousin, and is asking for more. Below is his review of book one:

"It’s a great book with lots of action and fun. Sometimes it’s even funny! The best book from Marcus Emerson is what I’d say. The book is not that long, only 84 pages long. Also, while you’re there, read Secret Agent 6TH Grader from Buchanan school.
Join Chase Cooper, Zoe, Brayden, Faith, Gavin, and the ninja clan as they stop Wyatt, Carlyle, and the red ninjas."
My son's going to be a writer, I'm telling you. He's so smart. I asked him a few questions about the book as well:

What was your favorite part of the book?
I enjoyed the action in the book and the fight scenes.

Were they violent or scary?
Not scary, but there was punching a slapping.

What was the main character like?
Chase was nice but stood up for himself.

Who do you think would like this book?
Kids fourth to sixth grade who are into ninjas.
