Ruby sets out to learn her own secret skill at Master Willow’s School for Ninjas in this charming picture book that celebrates confidence, creativity, and kindness.

Includes a craft for making a felt stuffed dragon!

Master Willow’s Ninja School is a place where junior ninja saplings must learn many important skills: how to make themselves invisible, fight skillfully, meditate patiently and—most importantly—how to be brave and unleash their own secret talent. But Ruby’s no good at traditional ninja skills and she seems too afraid to conquer her fears. Can a quiet, gentle sapling really graduate from ninja school? Yes! Especially when she taps into her own special talents.

Praise for The Secrets of Ninja School

"The artist’s gouache, pen, and ink illustrations are a treat, with aesthetics reminiscent of 1950s graphic design and animation. Inventive framings make every page a surprise."--Publishers Weekly
