  Booklist Review

In this unusual Halloween story, pint-size ninjas gather to go trick-or-treating. Little Kashi wants to be a ninja like her big brother, Yukio, and follows him everywhere, peppering him with questions. She warns him that he is risking danger when he dresses in a bird costume, because of the huge Samurai Scarecrow, who sings a creepy lullaby: Find me the birds who think I'm decayed . . . / I'll teach them to be scared of me. When Yukio tells Kashi she's not a real ninja, she runs off, inconsolable, while the others race to fill their buckets. A noise startles them. Is it a ghost? A zombie? A hungry werewolf? Much worse! Samurai Scarecrow appears, pouncing on a rueful Yukio and demanding his candy. Children will enjoy discovering the surprising little person who is inside that scarecrow costume. Digital illustrations employ a palette of purple, white, orange, and black. Lively ninja personalities, creepy trees and houses, and a mildly scary scarecrow produce a fun tale for all ninja wannabes.--Lolly Gepson Copyright 2018 Booklist
