Overview

This multi-award winning series continues the adventures as "Uncle" Usagi struggles with keeping a secret from Jotaro that everyone else seems to know. Not only do their travels bring the perils of the Neko Ninja (in hot pursuit of Chizu, ex-leader of their clan and friend to Usagi), they also have a close encounter with a new and deadly organization--the Koroshi League of Assassins. The beautiful thief Kitsune is up to her old tricks, and Usagi relates a story from his youth about a goblin swordmaster. Finally, an evil artist targets Jotaro with a possessed ink set in the three-part "Sumi-E" story, which features the return of Sasuke the Demon Queller!

Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal - School Library Journal
Adult/High School-Usagi, the rabbit bodyguard, is traveling with his son, although Jotaro does not know that Usagi is his father. Their adventures range from the fairly straightforward defeat of two ninja assassins to fighting powerful creatures conjured by a cursed sumi (calligraphy writing) set. Several incidents involve people from Usagi's past. Although readers new to the series can enjoy this book, it will have an extra thrill for those who recognize Kitsune, Chizu, and Sasuke. Sakai is a master storyteller, and his black-and-white, pen-and-ink artwork shows the same skill as his storytelling. Cultural notes and a gallery of covers from the original comics are included. Teens are bound to enjoy traveling with Usagi.-Susan Salpini, TASIS-The American School in England Copyright 2004 Reed Business Information.
