Nighttime Ninja by Barbara DaCosta –ESSENTIAL

DaCosta, Barbara and Illustrated by Young, Ed Nighttime Ninja 32 pgs. Little, Brown Books for Young Readers, 2012. $11.55 (Rating: G)
Through all obstacles a ninja sneaks through a house at night. Climbing, jumping, and hiding. All to get to a hard to find object. Will his mom catch him eating the ice cream?
Awesome collage style artwork with a quiet sneaky buildup to a dramatic ending! This is almost a pure picture book, students would have fun making up more story to go along with it. Not to mention the popularity of ninjas!
