Torkil Torsvik and Olve Askim (ill.)
A Ninja Robot's Super-Secret Diary

Torkil Torsvik is a hard rocker. He writes with the gas pedal pressed to the floor.
Nils is starting seventh grade. He has no idea how to make friends. He does not know what falling in love is. He has never seen a teacher - or daylight for that matter. Nils is no ordinary boy. He’s a super-secret ninja robot who is going out into the world for the first time. The coder who created Nils thinks he should live a normal life. At least that’s what she says. She calls herself mamma. But Nils senses that his mamma has scary ulterior motives.

It’s not easy to hide that you are a robot when you are a million times smarter than everyone else in math, or when you can master ten martial arts and have supersonic hearing. But it’s hysterically fun to read about it!

Join Nils in the most chaotic, action-packed and humourous first day of school of all time.
