Join us in welcoming authors Luke Flowers, Angela Cervantes, and Tracey West to the Scholastic Summer Reading Road Trip!
Flowers is the author and illustrator of the Moby Shinobi series. Moby Shinobi is a very helpful ninja! In this rhyming Level 1 reader, Moby heads to the firehouse to help the firefighters. Moby tries to hang up the gear, spray the hose, and climb a ladder, but each try ends in a funny mess. Moby wants to help, but he worries his ninja skills aren't right for the job. When a cat gets stuck up a tree, it's finally Moby's turn to save the day! Easy-to-read, bouncy text and bright, full-color artwork make this the perfect book for young readers!
