The Legend of Ninja Cowboy Bear
Bruins, David and Hilary Leung. 2009. Legend of Ninja Cowboy Bear. Kids Can Press.
I had low expectations for this one. I'm not sure why. But--and this is a good but--I was pleasantly surprised by this little story. The book is about three friends: a ninja, a cowboy, and a bear. These three friends get along great--despite their differences--for a long time. Until one day, each starts thinking about which one is really best. There are a series of competitions and contests throughout the book. But--and you've probably guessed where this is going--they discover that everyone is best at something. They all have different strengths. There's something special and wonderful about each of them.
