12 year old Naruto is an orphan who loves to play pranks and is struggling to graduate from the ninja academy.  He wants to be the best ninja in his village because he believes itís the only way anyone will ever like and accept him.  You see, everyone hates Naruto because trapped inside of him is the spirit of a 9-tailed fox demon that years ago killed the villageís champion ninja.  What follows is a lot of action and secret ninja techniques like the doppelganger, where a ninja makes copies of himself and all copies attack his opponent!  (Davinna Artibey, Center for International Studies, Denver Public Schools, CO)
