9781554534869: The Legend of Ninja Cowboy Bear

The ninja, the cowboy and the bear do everything together --- they paint pictures, compare cloud shapes in the sky, fly kites and much more. Though each friend is very different from one another, they enjoy each other's company. Until one day when they begin quarreling and compete to see which one is the best. The bear can pile up rocks the highest. The cowboy can collect the most raspberries. The ninja can catch the most rabbits. When each contest leads to more resentment, it seems the friends will never stop disagreeing. Only when they learn to be considerate of their differences do they finally realize how much they appreciate each other.

The cute, yet stylized artwork combined with a fun story about friendship and celebrating differences make this legend an unforgettable one.

This playfully illustrated picture book also includes instructions for the Ninja-Cowboy-Bear game, which is similar to Rock Paper Scissors except that kids use their whole body.

About the Author:

David Bruins lives in Dundas, Ontario, and spends most of his days as a computer programmer. However, he'd much rather spend his time riding his bicycle, playing guitar or telling stories to anyone who will listen.

Hilary Leung is a graphic artist in Burlington, Ontario, and a graduate of the illustration program at Sheridan College. His work for Kids Can Press includes the very popular Ninja Cowboy Bear series.

From School Library Journal:

PreSchool-Grade 2—This fable stars three very different friends: a ninja, a cowboy, and a bear. They usually get along well, but then one day a disagreement erupts. Each one believes that he is the best. To prove this, they compete in rock piling, raspberry picking, and rabbit catching. Since a different character wins each one of these competitions, they all feel unsatisfied and part ways to reflect upon the day. All three reach the same conclusion: each is unique and special in his own way. Thus, their friendship is restored. Readers can take the story a step further with the Ninja Cowboy Bear Game, which is strongly reminiscent of Rock Paper Scissors. The digital-cartoon illustrations are set in comic panels; the art and the occasional Japanese word bubble give the story an anime feel. A fun purchase with a solid message.—Laura Butler, Mount Laurel Library, NJ
