East meets North in North Pole Ninjas, a yuletide call-to-arms to save the spirit of Christmas.
You may not know that Santa has a team of special elves, selected for their ability to help carry out top-secret missions that are all about helping, giving, caring, and listening. Anyone who receives this box is called upon to help carry out those top secret missions with a bit of stealth and an open heart.
The gorgeously illustrated picture book retells the ancient legend the North Pole Ninjas use for new recruits. After reading the book, readers are given their own Ninja missions to carry out: 50 special tasks packed in a special envelope. Each mission encourages recruits to spread the holiday spirit--and share kindness and love.
Complete with a plush and huggable "sensei" to guide Ninjas on their journey, this is the perfect antidote to worrying about whether you've been naughty or nice.

Poet Gregson (All the Words Are Yours) and newcomer Linden encourage children to perform holiday acts of kindness in this book-and-plush package. The plush figure is of Santas wise sensei, whose North Pole Ninjas use their Christmas spirit/ to care for others needs. Thibodeau (Goblin Hood) contributes warmly lit, cinematic scenes of the ninja elves at work that give the book the feel of a holiday TV special. The rhymes can get a bit convoluted or vague (Stay hidden and stay quiet/ when shoveling that snow./ Secretly youll save Christmas/ no footprints where you go), but the more than 40 missions to be completed should keep children busy doing good deeds throughout the holidays. All ages. (Oct.)
