So quietly, so carefully, the ninja climbs high in the night, after midnight, after everyone in the house is asleep.
Down the hall he creeps in the moonlight, ready to complete his secret mission.
But suddenly, the lights blaze on! Who can stop the Nighttime Ninja?
Using textured cloth, string, and cut paper, artist Ed Young crafts bold picture panels to perfectly illustrate Barbara DaCosta’s 88-word story of a young boy sneaking toward his secret rendezvous with a midnight snack.
