With spare text and lush illustrations, Nighttime Ninja is a fun, adventure-filled story about the power of play and imagination.
I was so impressed with the illustrations in this book. The illustrations were done in cut paper, textured cloth, string, and colored pencil. I haven't seen anything like it before and I think it's very cool. My boys really loved it, too. The cut paper shows the nighttime ninja as a shadow perfectly. I give Ed Young (the illustrator) a huge pat on the back for an amazing job!
The story is adorable. My boys and I giggled all the way through. Not every page has words on it, so it was fun to make up our own words for what was happening. This is a great way to get children involved in the story and can also change the story up a bit each time.
This is an entertaining read for the entire family. And once again, the illustrations are incredible! I highly recommend this book for libraries of all kinds!
