Jack B. Ninja! Jack, be quick! Jack, jump over the bamboo stick! Secret mission starts tonight. Hide in shadow, out of sight.
In this imaginative ninja fantasy inspired by the classic nursery rhyme "Jack Be Nimble," cheer on Jack as he sneaks over castle walls, swims through hidden tunnels, and uncovers a secret treasure — all while avoiding detection.

A sneaky rhyming reverie with a surprise one-two punch ending from Bitty Bot author Tim McCanna and illustrator and Geisel Honor receipient Stephen Savage!
