Ninja Meerkats The Eye of the monkey by Gareth P Jones

Hidden in the remotest reaches of the Red Desert, in a place called Mystic Rock, legend tells of an elite fighting force of meerkats - The Clan of the Scorpion. Under the guidance of their mentor, the wise (and cryptic) Grandmaster One-Eye, and armed with ninja-know-how, these four warriors are sworn to protect the world from the evil plans of their age-old enemy, the Ringmaster...An enormous precious stone, rumoured to possess the power of invincibility, has disappeared from a mine in India, and The Clan set of to investigate. On their arrival, they encounter the ancient guardians of the lost stone, the Shaolin monkeys. But are they friends or foes...?

The second book in the new Ninja Meerkats series. In this book they are in Delhi, looking for the Delhi Llama, and together they search for the missing Eye of the Monkey Emerald.

As I said previously when reviewing the first book, The Clan of the Scorpion, this series is a great book for boys, reminds me of Teenage Mutant Hero Turtles, and is something different on today's market of books for boys. 

The style of writing and language used is perfect for young readers who are gaining confidence in reading alone or for younger children to share with their peers. 

Throughout the book are illustrations capturing the key moments within the story. At the end of the book there are also four pages which introduce the reader to each of the Ninja Meerkats.

Perfect idea for boys who love martial arts or action packed adventures.

Thank you to Stripes Publishing for sending me the book to review.
