North Pole Ninjas, Mission: Christmas
by Tyler Knott Gregson and Sarah Linden
Illustrated by Piper Thibodeau
This year, children can celebrate the true spirit of Christmas with a new interactive holiday story and tradition, NORTH POLE NINJAS: MISSION: Christmas! by bestselling poet Tyler Knott Gregson and his co-author Sarah Linden, and illustrated by Piper Thibodeau (Grosset & Dunlap). This picture book chronicles the legend of the North Pole Ninjas—Santa’s secret helpers who carry out anonymous good deeds—and calls upon new “recruits” to go undercover and complete thoughtful tasks with a bit of stealth and an open heart. The box set comes with 50 top-secret missions, along with a “sensei” plush to help guide young Ninjas along the way. North Pole Ninjas:MISSION: Christmas!
Tyler Knott Gregson and Sarah Linden were inspired to start this special holiday tradition after taking a long look at how the holidays had changed since they were kids, and deciding that they wanted to redirect their kids’ energy from receiving presents to giving back. Sarah’s kids immediately latched on to the idea, which is no surprise—the brilliance of NORTH POLE NINJAS is that it empowers kids to take action and makes it fun for them to give back to their friends, families, and communities.
