Description

L to R (Western Style)

The VIZ Kids line of chapter books debuts with Naruto, the story of a plucky prankster with a powerful secret whose ultimate goal is to be the world's greatest ninja!
Naruto is a ninja-in-training with a need for attention, a knack for mischief and, sealed within him, a strange, formidable power. His antics amuse his instructor Kakashi and irritate his teammates, intense Sasuke and witty Sakura, but Naruto is serious about becoming the greatest ninja in the village of Konohagakure!
The Next Level: Haku and Zabuza are the worst enemies Naruto and his friends have ever faced. Now that the battle has become a matter of life and death, Naruto must learn what it means to truly become a ninja: sometimes you have to fight to win…and then deal with the consequences.


About the Author

Author/artist Masashi Kishimoto was born in 1974 in rural Okayama Prefecture, Japan. After spending time in art college, he won the Hop Step Award for new manga artists with his manga Karakuri (""Mechanism""). Kishimoto decided to base his next story on traditional Japanese culture. His first version of Naruto, drawn in 1997, was a one-shot story about fox spirits; his final version, which debuted in Weekly Shonen Jump in 1999, quickly became the most popular ninja manga in Japan.
