Two Lions 

After crossing raging rivers and tromping through the jungle, Naughty Ninja returns to his secret ninja training camp for lunch. But when he gets inside, his parents tell him he needs a bath. Before Naughty Ninja gets in the tub, he notices poisonous flies and an angry alligator circling his dad, who doesn’t even seem to know he’s in trouble. Good thing Naughty Ninja is around to save the day! 

Amid sudsy fun, a boy’s imaginary ninja life and his everyday world collide in the ultimate bath time adventure. 

“Good fun for all little ninjas and their parents.” —Kirkus Reviews 

 “This book does a wonderful job of demonstrating how a child’s imagination can turn any ordinary experience into a rollicking adventure.” – School Library Journal 

Todd Tarpley’s Naughty Ninja Takes A Bath is a fun, giggle-inducing picture book that turns boring bath time into a wonder-filled whimsical adventure! 

Little readers will have a blast joining one stinky, yet noble, naughty ninja as he tries to take a bath, but saving his dad from alligators, samurais, and more gets in the way. Tarpley delivers non-stop silly action and adventure through clever, imaginative storytelling and word usage. Vin Vogel perfectly captures the story’s laugh-out-loud tone with his energetic, engaging, and exciting illustrations, full of wacky details and adorableness. 

Naughty Ninja Takes A Bath will captivate both little readers and parents with its rollicking humor, fun illustrations, and unforgettable little ninja hero!
