Find your niche with Wink, the Ninja Who Wanted to be Noticed

Wink, the Ninja Who Wanted to be Noticed, by J.C. Phillipps

images6 “It was the happiest day of Wink’s life when he was accepted to the Summer Moon School for Young Ninjas.”   Wink is sure he’ll be a great ninja.  Master Zutsu tries to teach Wink the ninja arts, but Wink’s desire to be noticed gets him into trouble with every lesson, until the Master kicks him out of ninja school and sends him home to his grandmother.  Wink finally finds a place where his ninja skills are admired and his flamboyance is a plus, making both Master Zutsu and Grandmother proud.

This is a great book about finding your niche and using your talents to their best advantage.  It’s also very funny!  The exuberant illustrations are cut paper collage with an Asian flavor — who can resist Grandmother’s curtains?
