Peter wanted to be a ninja. It was his first day at Ninja School and he was really scared, so he hid behind a tree. In lessons he hid behind his desk.
At the end of the day, his teacher saw him and asked what class he was in.
Peter said, 'Yours.'
When he arrived home, he told his mum he did not like Ninja School and had hidden all day.
'I know,' said his mum. 'Your teacher told me you were the best in class at not being seen.'
Maybe Ninja School wasn't so bad after all, thought Peter.
