But with some help from Toby, he discovers that teamwork makes every job easier! With easy-to-read rhyming text and full-color artwork throughout, this early reader series is sure to be a hit with beginning readers!

{My thoughts} – I have had the pleasure of reading a few of the other Moby Shinobi books in the past. I have always enjoyed them. They are written in a rhyme type verse and they flow extremely nicely. They always have a fun little story and the graphics match the text upon the pages.

This book wasn’t much different other then it had four short stories and was focused around both Moby and his pal Toby. They both do things together and get to meet new people and help them after of course causing a bit of trouble to begin with. It’s all written and done in good fun and completely easy to understand and follow along.

I really enjoy the simpleness of this book and hope that the rest in the series will be made in the same way. I like that it’s east for children to read and the sentences are short and not overly long. I look forward to reading more books in this series in the future.

Final Conclusion: 5 Star Rating.
