Wink the Nimble Ninja is the star of the Lucky Dragon Circus! But-yawn
-being a circus performer is hard work and-yawn
-Wink is tired. It is time, Grandmother says, for Wink to take a nap. But every time Wink tries to lie down, his fans show up. They won't let him sleep! Fortunately, with the help of Master Zutsu and the Summer Moon School for Young Ninjas, Wink comes up with the perfect plan to find a good place to nap-alone. Illustrated with striking collages, this is a funny, high-energy follow-up to Wink: The Ninja Who Wanted to Be Noticed
"Having earned notoriety in his first adventure, Wink now stars in the Lucky Dragon Circus and is basking in his fame. But what he could really use is some shut-eye. Unfortunately, he's pursued high and low by fans, who won't let him rest. It's up to droll Master Zutsu, who speaks in allegories, to deliver a solution even if Wink is a little slow on the uptake ('Why can't Master Zutsu say anything normal?' he complains). Phillipps offers wit aplenty in cut-paper compositions that match Wink's boundless energy and bravado. Even when sleepy, her hero demands to be noticed. Ages 4 up. (Mar.)"
