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.
