"Try, try, as best as you can,
you can't beat me,
I'm the Ninjabread Man!"

In this fun spinoff of the classic "Gingerbread Man" story, Sensei makes an age-old recipe for ninjabread. But the cookie escapes from the oven and runs loose!

Can the Ninjabread Man trick Ninja Bear, Ninja Snake, Ninja Mouse, and Ninja Fox? In the end, the clever Ninja Fox outsmarts the Ninjabread Man.

This action-packed ninja adventure features a wise sensei, adorable ninja animals, and one hard-to-catch cookie -- all brought to life by award-winning Dinotrux illustrator Chris Gall!
