I was so excited to find out about a follow up:
Our fearless ninja, Maxwell, is seeking out someone to play with him, but everyone in his "clan" (family) is too busy. He resigns himself to being alone , but a fabulous surprise awaits him as he goes to eat his dinner. Chung takes on a subject to which almost every child can relate. As a parent, I cringed guiltily at times when I dismissed my children when they wanted to play. The panels and speech bubbles of the layout give the book huge kid appeal.
My own ninja said: Hey, I've never seen this book before!
Me: That's because it just came out today.
Christine: I want to read it.
And she did.
