Ninjas: Japan's Stealthy Secret Agents

by Matt Chandler
Illustrated by Silvio dB

When thinking about Ninjas people often picture deadly killers wearing black clothing. However, while ninjas could be fierce and skilled warriors, they weren't just assassins who sneaked around in the dark. They more often worked as spies and secret agents who gathered intelligence and information on enemy clans. Dynamic illustrations and engaging tales of ninja warriors teach readers what it was like to be a stealthy secret agent in Medieval Japan.

Booklist - Miriam Aronin

"Educational text appears in small boxes within individual panels and is supported by thought bubbles and speech balloons that express the characters’ ideas. . . .Back matter adds helpful details about both geography and the time span—sometimes surprisingly brief—in which each kind of fighter was active. These books will draw visual learners and history buffs into a high-interest aspect of medieval Japan and Europe. . . .these books present an exciting window into history." - Booklist
