If I Were A Ninja is a playful exploration of the Ninja of ancient Japan. Delightful drawings are sure to engage your young child. The book is readable at two levels. For younger children (5-8) the larger text contains simple concepts. The smaller text at the bottom of the pages contains more complex ideas of how the Ninja operated, and is more appropriate for slightly older children (8-10). If I Were A Ninja author Jim Tignor was in advisory contact with American ninja martial arts pioneer Stephen K. Hayes to be sure this story was as accurate as possible.
