Humanoids has released a sneak peek of Shy Ninja from the father daughter of Ricard and Adara Sanchez with art by Arianna Florean.
Young Rena suffers from social anxiety disorder. It keeps her from engaging at school, from hanging out with her best friend in person, or participating in any sort of group activity. Pressed by her mother to find some social outlet, she enrolls in a School for Ninjas as a joke—and in an instant, her life changes.
Rena’s instructor, the mysterious Dysart, tells her that she may actually be the heir to an ancient prophecy that will return the Ninja to prominence. Dysart tells Rena she will become the Ninja legend known as “The Ghost”—but only if she can conquer her fears. Assuming she can even get past her own anxieties, will Rena help Dysart return the Ninja to their former glory… or is Dysart planning to exploit Rena for his own cryptic aims?
A fun and relatable romp from a father-daughter writing team, SHY NINJA is a fantastic read for parents and kids alike.
Shy Ninja arrives on June 1, 2021.
