The creators of The Legend of Ninja Cowboy Bear return with a high-energy story about friendship. This time, the daring ninja learns that the greatest thrills and the best adventures are the ones we share.
The ninja's playtime games are too rough-and-tumble for his friends the cowboy and the bear. The ninja isn't interested in his friends' games --- and playing all by himself isn't much fun. Can the rambunctious ninja ever meet his friends halfway?
Children will easily relate to the lesson about mutual respect embedded in a story about three different but nonetheless close friends.
