Booklist Reviews 2014 June #1

Almost every kid has skulked around the house like a ninja, snuck up on unsuspecting targets, and gone unnoticed (or at least pretended to go unnoticed). This boy takes it a step farther, donning night-fighter garb and arming himself with a thick ninja stick (pool cue), an unbreakable ninja rope (jump rope), and more. Mission one: remove the obstacle of the family dog and pounce upon the sleeping dad. Mission two: enter kitchen unseen and steal milk and cookies from the little sister. Both objectives are met with stealthy success, though the latter gets him sent to his room: I am dishonored. Chung's warm acrylics do wonders with the dim, shadowy interior of a middle-class home, alternating between dynamic full-page illustrations and comic book–like panels that detail the boy's meticulous maneuvers. Atop this, Chung sometimes paints fiery dragon outlines that let us in on the boy's imagination. The result can clutter the proceedings a bit, but this is nonetheless relatable, action-packed fun for wee little ninjas everywhere. Copyright 2014 Booklist Reviews.

Maxwell is a creative--and hungry!--young ninja. Chung's humorous and vibrant illustrations and simple text achieve the right pacing for Maxwell's singular mission: chocolate chip cookies. Maxwell's maneuvers are captured in digitally manipulated acrylic paintings with collage, through comic-style panels and double-page spreads rich with details both real and imagined. Readers will applaud Maxwell's over-the-top ninja antics.

Maxwell, a creative--and hungry!--young ninja, will inspire legions of nascent warriors with this tale of an epic snack-time quest. Chung's humorous and vibrant illustrations and simple text achieve the right pacing for Maxwell's singular mission: chocolate chip cookies. A good ninja is a prepared ninja, and Maxwell is well accessorized: a thick stick (pool cue), silent footwear (slip-on sneakers), gloves (rubber ones from the kitchen), rope (jump rope), etc. With a confident "I AM A NINJA!" leap, he sneaks, creeps, tumbles, and climbs his way through obstacles (that are not actual impediments) to the kitchen, where, under the watchful gaze of his toddler sister, he steals her cookies and, in a remarkably well-executed finale, a cup of milk. Maxwell's maneuvers are captured in digitally manipulated acrylic paintings with collage, through comic-style panels and double-page spreads rich with details both real and imagined. A mischievous dragon oversees the snack grab and guides our ninja's stealthiest moves--then sticks around to celebrate. Readers will applaud Maxwell's over-the-top ninja antics and giggle as he takes his unsuspecting family by surprise. Pair this with DaCosta and Young's Nighttime Ninja (rev. 11/12) for additional proof that the way of the ninja is easily integrated into daily life. pamela yosc Copyright 2014 Horn Book Magazine.

PW Reviews 2014 March #4

The ninja wannabe who wreaks stealthy havoc on his or her household is now a staple of the children's bookshelf. But Arree, a designer making his picture book debut, shows there's still plenty of kick left in the premise, thanks to a bold visual style and a keen sense of comic timing. With a dark and saturated palette, long shadows, and graphic-novel framings, Arree hits the sweet spot between sinister and spoof, while showcasing his hero in a repertoire of covert action poses worthy of the most loose-jointed action figure. As the little ninja ambushes his napping father and delights his baby sister by stealing cookies and milk from the kitchen table (until she becomes collateral damage during his escape), the narration is parceled out in hushed, breathless sound bites: "Against all odds,/ he must believe/ in his ability/ to rebound/ and overcome/ all challenges." Lines like that are made for dramatic, movie trailer–style readalouds, but children will get just as much pleasure out of the young ninja's DIY getup and the faux gravity of the obstacles he surmounts. Ages 4–7. (June)
