ABOUT THE BOOK

The first day of Kimi’s ninja training with her Grandma Bachan is an exciting day, but chaos ensues when a group of monsters is accidentally unleashed from the tiki. Ren Hanami’s NINJA MOM stories are inspired by the folklore and mythology from her Japanese and Hawai’ian heritage. Readers can learn new words while being encouraged to address life’s surprises with strength, positivity, and humor. Don Schmidt’s expressive illustrations bring the NINJA MOM characters to life with colorful action sure to delight readers of all ages.
