Review by CarmellaLee
Personal Response: I remember when my son watached Naruto programs. I was intrigued and actually watched them. Reading this book brought me back to this. I was still able to get the sense of the story eventhough the book has black and white illustrations. Curricular or Programming Connections: This book can lead to a program dealing with the Anime characters, reading club, movies.
Review by Kassilem
Naruto has really grown and then he continues to grow, not only physically but now also mentally. He's faced with psychological challenges and has to find which morals and values he stands behind and why. I really really enjoyed his physical achievements but I can just see these psychological changes playing a huge role later on. And it's not just Naruto that grows; everyone does, even the villains. Somehow these books have turned out as a spectacularly gratifying read. I recommend them to anyone who reads Graphic Novels or Epic Fantasy or both, with a added note to get past the first ten or so volumes and watch it be worth it. It is a LOT of volumes, but again, well worth the reads. :)
