FROM WIMPY TO WARRIOR
The book that started it all!!
Fifth grade was the worst year of Marc’s life. He stunk at gym class, math was too hard for him, the school lunch was horrible, and his class field trip was ruined because he couldn’t swim. But what was the most awful thing about fifth grade? Kenny Williamson, the class bully, who calls himself the “King of the Jungle Gym.” When Marc’s mother tells him that his uncle Jake is coming to stay for the whole summer, Marc can't wait. Uncle Jake is a for-real, super-cool Navy SEAL. And Uncle Jake has a plan. He’s going to turn Marc into a warrior. Becoming a warrior isn’t easy. It involves a lot of pull-ups, sit-ups, push-ups, squats, swimming, eating right, and studying harder than ever before! Can Marc transform himself into a warrior before school starts in the fall—and finally stand up to the King of the Jungle himself?

The answer: WHO KNOWS until you try it out!
One thing is for certain, “Way of the Warrior Kid: The Coloring Book” will inspire kids to learn more, to be physically fit, to strive to be their best—to get on The Path—one crayon stroke at a time.
There’s more to life than pull-ups.
Marc’s life has changed since last summer, when his for-real, super-cool Navy SEAL Uncle Jake came to visit. He’s eating healthy, practicing jiu-jitsu, and working hard in school. Marc’s had a great year…until the very last day of school, when he gets into trouble because of Nathan James. Nathan is mean and annoying, and Marc has to spend every day with Nathan at summer camp. Nathan calls Marc “Plate Face,” and he’ll never leave him alone. Marc is sick of it. Even worse, Marc has no way to get to summer camp except for walking. He wants a new bike, called "the Bentley," but his parents don’t think he needs it, even though the bike he owns is totally falling apart. There’s only one person who can help Marc turn his bummer summer around – Uncle Jake. With Uncle Jake back in town, Marc realizes that being a Warrior Kid isn’t just about being strong on the outside – it’s also about being strong on the inside. Can Marc learn to control his temper, get himself the bike he wants, and get Nathan off his back?
where there’s a WILL...
A new summer brings new challenges.
Marc shouldn’t have a single complaint as he finishes seventh grade. He’s done really well in his classes, his friends Kenny and Nathan have joined him at jiu-jitsu, and most important, he’s been staying on the Warrior Kid path. There’s just one problem and that problem is named Danny Rhinehart. It seems like every thing Marc does, Danny does better. Danny runs faster, can do more pull-ups, has jiu-jitsu moves that Marc can’t solve, and is even awesome in school. On top of all that, Danny is too nice—he smiles at everything and it drives Marc CRAZY. Marc doesn’t know what to do. Luckily, there is some good news: Marc’s Navy SEAL Uncle Jake is back to visit for the summer. Maybe Uncle Jake can help Marc learn to handle a kid like Danny—a kid who is good at everything! But it won’t be easy. Marc will have to work hard, train hard, and learn to deal with a brand new kind of problem: his own ego. It’s going to be a tough summer, but where there’s a will, there’s a way…
