Teenage Muntant Ninja Turtles have been popular for decades. Although the fictional characters started as cartoons on television, a big screen live action version is opening in theaters soon. If you’ve got a young fan of the series in your household who just also just happens to need reading practice, take a look at Teenage Muntant Ninja Turtles: Pizza Party! by Joshua Sternin. This title is part of the library’s early reader section, and features one or two short sentences per page in large type. The pictures are cartoon style in bold and bright colors, sure to catch the reader’s eye and help the story line move along even if a word or two is new.
Our hard-shelled heroes are on the streets of New York at night, ready to receive their pizza order, when they hear a scream! Men in dark suits are abducting a girl in yellow and the Ninja Turtles swing into action. However, the men in suits turn out to be evil robots controlled by pink slimy aliens. The turtles chase the aliens away and save the girl. Afterwards everyone enjoys a pizza party.
If this library book stirs an interest in the Teenage Muntant Ninja Turtles (or you already know a fan of the series) the library has a couple other selections with the same characters – some picture books and another short story collection in an early reader level.
You can get the book reviewed here and more great titles to watch, read, listen to, or play with at the Port Library at 1718 N. Hersey in Beloit. This is director Rachel Malay, saying “Thanks for checking us out!”
