Wink: The Ninja Who Wanted to Be Noticed by J.C. Phillips. Wink has always wanted to be a ninja, but when he finally is admitted to ninja school, he keeps getting into trouble. His kicking and jumping skills are fine, but he has difficulty with the silent and stealthy part. Every day, he returns home dejected and listens to advice from his grandmother over their evening tea. Finally, he finds a career where he fits in perfectly. The bright illustrations appear to be either cut from patterned paper or computer graphics and suit the story perfectly. I have met many young children enamored of martial arts, and never yet met one who really mastered the silent and stealthy aspect, making this book perfect for young would-be ninjas.
