Late at night, when all is quiet and everyone is asleep, a ninja creeps silently through the house in search of treasure. Soon he reaches his ultimate goal…and gets a big surprise! Will the nighttime ninja complete his mission?
With spare text and lush illustrations, Nighttime Ninja is a fun, adventure-filled story about the power of play and imagination.
Recently we got a chance to read Nighttime Ninja and we all agreed that not only is this a wonderful story, but the illustrations are just as great. The Nighttime Ninja sure will become a favorite bedtime story your kids will ask for night after night, we sure can’t get enough of it in our house.
We definitely recommend this adventurous book for young kids. They will love the overall message and the play and imagination this book will introduce them to.

She makes her home in Minneapolis, Minnesota.
