Yukio is a dutiful ninja, but all he wants for Christmas is an epic snowball fight with his brethren. (They refuse, not wanting to end up on Santas naughty list.) Determined to run Santa out of Ninja Village, Yukio sounds the alarm when Santa arrives; the young ninjas successfully chase off the intruder, who is soon replaced by a mysterious samurai with a snowman armygiving Yukio his snowball fight after all. A muted red-and-blue palette, exuberantly playful typography, and some Crouching Tigerworthy action sequences (Ninjas and snowmen clashed!!! writes Pingk as the opposing forces fly toward each other across a snowy field) combine to create a frenzied, fun, and nontraditional Christmas tale. Its an impressively disciplined debut for Pingk and, just as important, a blast to read. Ages 48. Agent: Carrie Hannigan, Hannigan Salky Getzler Agency. (Sept.)
