A Moby Dick-inspired picture book adventure unlike any you've ever seen--with a surprise ending--from Caldecott Medal-winning artist Ed Young.
Deep in the dark ocean, Mighty Moby lurks. Up above the ocean waves, a one-legged captain pursues the whale he clashed with long ago.
Mighty Moby and the captain are soon locked in another battle...but things aren't always what they seem.
Caldecott Medalist Ed Young brings us a dynamically interactive story with a surprise twist that will have you rocking along to the waves of the ocean.
Praise for Nighttime Ninja:
A Publishers Weekly Best Book of the Year
A Parents' Choice Award Recommended Title
* "Young's expressive collage artwork, built of fabric, paper, and bits of string, hums with vitality, even in the silence of midnight...Beneath these frames, debut author DaCosta's spare, sinuous prose reinforces the ninja's intrepid, surreptitious elegance...With measured pacing, careful design, and a beautifully symbiotic partnership of word and image, this enormously appealing, timeless story promises to delight preschool audiences and families alike for years to come."
