Mosquitoes can bite all kinds of people--ballerinas, chefs, babies, even you and me. But they can't bite . . . NINJAS! Mosquitoes might be quick, but ninjas are quicker. Mosquitoes might be sneaky, but ninjas are sneakier. And mosquitoes might be hungry, but ninjas are . . . hungrier!
With tons of not-very-stealthy appeal, Jordan P. Novak's debut delivers buzzy, wacky, and hilarious story.
Jordan P. Novak is an artist and children's book author/illustrator living in New York's Hudson Valley. When she isn't writing, painting or drawing, she is raising three little humans. She enjoys building fairy worlds and playing dress-up--especially if it involves a tea party--making up new bedtime songs every night, and teaching art to tiny people.
"Novak’s art is clean and includes small details to delight independent readers, while the patterning of text makes this title ideal for sharing aloud." - School Library Journal
"[Novak's] ninja is a comically commanding character . . . reminiscent of a silent film star. Flat, saturated colors and large-scale cartooning give the book the feel of an oversize comic." - Publishers Weekly
"There’s a pleasing cartoonish vibe to the ink and digital art, with our stealthy ninja evoking Meghan McCarthy’s pop-eyed figures. . . . The ninja vs. mosquito antics, which have that perennial Road Runner vs. Wile E. Coyote appeal, are entertaining." - BCCB
"With eye-catching, brightly colored ink drawings featuring simple, cartoon-style figures that are big enough for all to view clearly, this is naturally appealing for audiences of any size . . . this would be great fun for a read-aloud." - Booklist
