A playful adventure full of action, humor, and sneak attacks—now in board book!

With fast-paced rhymes that parallel the little ninja’s quick moves, this humorous ode to sneaking, spying, and scheming—as well as unexpected teamwork—is sure to be read over and over again.

Praise for Ninja, Ninja, Never Stop

--Kirkus Reviews

"The blocky, bold illustrations and quickly paced narrative combine to evoke satisfying comic-book action."
--School Library Journal
