It's not just a question of learning to fight - a ninja must know how to move without being seen, how to endure boredom and exhaustion, and how to work as part of a team.IThis interactive series will enthrall young and reluctant readers (Ages 8-12) by making them part of the story, inviting them to become the main character. Each book uses humorous illustrations to depict the sometimes dark and horrific side of life during important eras in history. In the mid-16th century, rival warlords are fighting for control of Japan. They need the services of the "shadow warriors" - young men and women who have been trained in the techniques of stealth warfare. Do you have the discipline to become one of them?
