Ninja, Cowboy, and Bear are best friends, but Ninja can't figure out how to play with his friends (and meet his own need for adventure) without someone else getting hurt. What's a ninja to do? Fear not, dear reader. When you're motivated, no problem is without a solution. The character design for this book is too cute, and I loved the parable-like storytelling. There's some real creativity in how the friends end up combining their different styles. Just like a parable, it's meant to impart a lesson, but the fun details keep it from being just another "lesson" book.

(There are two other books in the series: Ninja Cowboy Bear Presents the Call of the Cowboy and The Legend of Ninja Cowboy Bear. The Cowboy book is less coherent than the Ninja book in delivering its message. My son was indifferent to it despite liking the characters. The Legend is a fine book with a message that everyone's different and that's okay... which is then undercut by the "Rock Paper Scissors" style game in the back where Ninja always beats Bear, etc. Not all kids would notice the internal contradiction, but it bugged me.)
