Ah, Wink. This is currently one of my son's very favorite books, and we've been reading it four days a week for many weeks now. In all, it's a simple story. Boy wants to be a ninja, and possesses the talents to e one. However, he can't be stealthy. He loves to perform. However, when his talents are discovered by a visiting circus, Wink finds a place where he truly belongs--performing ninjitsu for a crowd wearing a glittering outfit.

Some people will probably say this book encourages kids to misbehave. That's not the point. The moral of the story is that if you keep on trying, you'll find a place where you can be yourself. It's not the end of the world if you don't belong somewhere.

The illustrations are charming as well, all done in paper and filled with emotion. This is a book I don't mind reading to my son again and again.
