Book's official description
Masters of Spinjitzu: a new force to save the world!
The next chapter book in the Ninjago series!
Cole is the leader of the team. As the Earth Ninja, he is (perhaps unsurprisingly) the most grounded of the four. And the strongest. There is no physical challenge Cole cannot overcome. Now is his chance to use his skills to save the world!
Sensei Wu has gathered a powerful team of ninja warriors. Now he must train them in the ancient art of Spinjitzu. If he fails, Lord Garmadon and his evil skeleton warriors will destroy the land of Ninjago and all of its inhabitants.
Solid and steady, Cole—Ninja of Earth—was destined for the challenging role of leading his fellow ninja on their dangerous missions. Now it's up to Cole to unite the team while utilizing their different strengths. But can Cole keep each ninja's ego in check before someone gets hurt . . . or worse?
- This book marks the first and only appearance of the Phantom Ninja, though another character of the same title would later be introduced.
- Like the other books, this story can be considered canon unless the series contradicts it at some point. When asked whether this book in particular is canon, Tommy Andreasen responded, "Not sure! But there nothing in it that contradicts the main story."
