Ninja training academy! (BYO snails)
A university in Japan is offering students the chance to learn about ninjas, including lessons in walking stealthily and breathing methods to prevent runners from tiring. However, Mie University in Tsu puts most emphasis on the academic study of ninjas, intending to explore their roles and lifestyles. ‘‘ The most important role of ninja is to collect intelligence. They tried to avoid fighting as much as possible ,’’ said Professor Yuji Yamada, 47, of the university, during his ‘‘ Ninja Study’ ’ class. The class began in 2013, with 230 students. More than 400 students applied.

Hi Andy & Terry, I have read all the tree house books and was wondering if you could make a TV series or movies based on the books like The Day My Butt Went Psycho? Thanks Georgia Garrett (aged 9) - 2 years ago
Hi Georgia, well … maybe … but I think the treehouse is so kind of improbable and strange that it might not make as much sense on the screen as it does in your imagination!
Hi Andy, congratulations on everything you have achieved, you have made the world a better place, encouraging children's imagination and of course contributing to their love of reading. Just wondering if you are planning on touring Australia? We missed out last year, 1 day too late and my girls were devastated so I'm hoping we will be given another opportunity this year. We are in Perth, WA and my little girl was the one who dressed up as a Treehouse (shared pic with u on Twitter)... - 2 years ago
