The '''Tale of the Utterly Gutsy Shinobi''' was [[Jiraiya]]'s first book, written while training the [[Ame Orphans]]. The story follows the adventures of a ninja named Naruto, a name Jiraiya came up with while eating ramen. The main character, Naruto, never gives up and vows to break the "''curse''" that was mentioned in the story. The mentioned "''curse''" represents the 'vicious cycles' of war, conflict and hatred that occupies the ninja world that [[Nagato]] once spoke to Jiraiya about.

Because of this, the book is dedicated to Nagato. [[Minato Namikaze]] notes that the Naruto in the story is very much like Jiraiya. For this reason he thought it was a very good book, though Jiraiya pointed out that it didn't sell very well; he even had a book signing which not a single person showed up to.
