Additional Notes

From The Publisher*A young ninja wants a snowball fight for Christmas, and he just might get his holiday wish in this picture book with graphic novel–inspired illustrations that celebrate the spirit of giving, Samurai style.

It's snowing on Christmas Eve! Yukio loves snowball fights, but none of the other ninjas will play with him for fear of landing on Santa's naughty list. Can Yukio chase Santa away from Ninja Village, or will a Samurai Santa thwart Yukio's plan? An epic snowball fight later, one thing's for sure: this is going to be Yukio's best Christmas ever.
Review Quote*"[This] Christmas story will appeal to kids interested in ninjas and samurais and, of course, to any kids who like an epic snowball fight."
Review Quote*"A super fun holiday read-aloud that should delight little ninjas everywhere."
Review Quote*"[A] frenzied, fun, and nontraditional Christmas tale. It's an impressively disciplined debut for Pingk and, just as important, a blast to read."
Review Quote*"[M]ajor points to Pingk for his digital art, with its simple, bold limited palette and seamlessly integrated red or white lettering that can render any scene ‘EPIC!!!'"
Review Quote*"Rubin Pingk's dynamic, stylish red, gray and black artwork captures this clever story of over-hasty action and happy endings, making for a "Very Ninja Christmas" indeed."
