My Grandma's a Ninja

By Todd Tarpley
Illustrated by Danny Chatzikonstantinou

When Ethan's grandma suggests they take a zip line to school, Ethan realises that his grandma is a little different. In fact, she's a ninja! Ethan is soon the hit of the school when his grandma drops from the ceiling at show-and-tell, and teaches the kids karate moves and how to do backflips in slow motion. But when his grandma deflates his team's soccer ball, everyone is upset—including Ethan. Why can't he just have a regular grandma? But when Ethan tries out his new karate moves during the championship game ...he's happy that his grandma isn't ordinary.

  • Ninjas are hot! And this new twist – a grandma ninja – will make kids laugh out loud.
  • Todd Tarpley is a formerly published author. He wrote 'Ten Tiny Toes' illustrated by Marc Brown in 2012

About the illustrator

Danny Chatzikonstantinou was born in 1973. He illustrates children's books and sometimes writes the words, too. He learned his craft by drawing on napkins at first. Later on, he moved to sketch pads and notebooks. Now he has a full set of sharpened pencils and tons of blank drawing paper that he never uses because he moved back to napkins again. Danny is a self-taught artist who lives and works in Athens, Greece.
