Little Kunoichi is a young ninja in training. However, with the help of a friend, she learns the power of perseverance, hard work, and cooperation when they wow the crowd at the Island Festival.
Despite a rather strong premise, I'm afraid this story was a bit ho hum for me. The watercolor illustrations are great at capturing that ninja-like quality necessary for such a tale. Sadly, the text itself did not stand up under scrutiny, meandering to an ending that felt rather abrupt. In a world full of ninja picture books, this one just didn't stand ou for me.
