    Okay, Ninja rella is really fun As one of the Far Out Fairy Tales graphic novels, the original gets twisted in some imaginative ways I love that Ninja rella isn t hoping to go to the Prince s ball because she wants her happily ever after, being saved from her circumstances by the Prince and then marrying him No, this version of Cinderella wants to save herself and the Prince by becoming his extremely awesome royal ninja bodyguard Having learned to be smart from her mother and strong from her father, Cinderella transforms herself into a kick ass ninja, now known as Ninja rella, after her mother s death Of course, her father remarries a woman with two daughters and after he too dies, Ninja rella is relegated to servant by her clich evil stepmother On the evening of the ball the most adorable little fairy godninja rocks up to outfit Ninja rella in appropriate ninja attire and provides her with her glass katana sword There s no pumpkin or talking animals in this version so Ninja rella makes her own way to the ball.Ninja rella has some brilliant moves and her expressions are priceless I appreciated that it s her strength and skills that shine in this story instead of her beauty I really connected to her and loved her determination and attitude.The illustrations were fantastic, capturing Ninja rella s emotions and moves well I always enjoy the bonus material at the end of the Far Out Fairy Tales stories an explanation of the original story, illustrated representation of the main differences between the original and Far Out version, questions to get the reader to think about what they ve read and a glossary that explains tricky words.My main nitpick with this story is that I was disappointed Ninja rella ran from the Prince so he wouldn t see her rags at midnight I would ve thought this Cinderella wouldn t give a damn about her clothes and what others thought of them However I concede it s a necessary evil to move the plot along to the all important search for the owner of the glass katana As a side note, I always found it bizarre in the version I grew up with that at midnight all of the fairy godmother magic is undone except for the slipper the Prince took door to door Surely the glass slipper should have vanished or transformed back into its pre magic form like everything else

    This was a great quick read I ve been a big fan of Joey Comeau for a long time, so when I saw he d written this I knew I had to check it out It s an awesome retelling of Cinderella with ninjas, and interesting for kids too The back of the book has some visual questions for kids like, these panels go this way Why do you think the artist chose to do that a page with history about the tale of Cinderella, a page with some of the changes they made from the traditional to the ninja version like a glass katana instead of slippers and a short glossary of potentially unfamiliar words I really enjoyed it and will definitely recommend to kids in the library

    I think this would be a great graphic novel for younger kids It has a glossary in the back, explaining possibly difficult words, as well as questions that encourage the reader to think thoroughly about the artistic choices that were made and what effect they might have on how the story is read processed.As for the story itself, it is a pleasant and short retelling of Cinderella, in which the girl really wants to be a ninja It has played with those recognisable Cinderella elements and changed them a bit, which works well Overall a bit odd, but enjoyable.

    Another great retelling from the Far Out Fairytales graphic novel series.Ninja rella doesn t want to marry the prince she wants to show off her awesome fighting skills and be his personal bodyguard However, when her mother and father dies, and she is left with her evil step mother and step sisters, her ninja outfit is burned and she is forced to do all the housework for her family When the prince holds a grand ball, with the help of her fairy godnija, Ninja rella has her chance to show off her skills to the prince I don t have much to add to what I ve said in my reviews of other books in this series, but I enjoyed it as much as the rest and I love that these books all have great female heroines for young people to look up to These books have had mass appeal in our school library among both boys and girls so I d recommend them for any collection though they re especially great for low ability reluctant readers.
