Growing up at the edge of the forest, sisters Hansel and Gretel are no strangers to danger. They've been practicing ninja stealth and karate chops at the local dojo - a move that proves shrewd when their parents are kidnapped by a wily fox. The plucky pair set off on a rescue operation, but the forest is very dark, and their breadcrumb trail doesn't last very long. Then they stumble across a mouth-watering sight: a cottage of cornbread! Danger ensues when they l realise the house is the fox's but her nefarious manoeuvres are no match for the chicks' ninja kicks.
Get ready for these Kung POW Chickens! The team that brought you The Three Ninja Pigs and Ninja Red Riding Hood is back with another rollicking fractured fairy tale.
About the Author
Corey Rosen Schwartz has no true Ninja training, but she can sure kick butt in Scrabble. She lives in Warren, New Jersey. Rebecca J. Gomez has been writing stories and poems for kids since she was five years old. She also loves to hike, draw, and play games with her husband and their three children. She also co-authored What About Moose? with Corey Rosen Schwartz. Dan Santat is the creator of the Disney Channel's animated hit The Replacements and also holds a black belt in Shotokan. He lives with his family in Los Angeles.
"The classic fairy tale gets a fowl-focused, martial-arts makeover in this jaunty picture book... Schwartz and Gomez's lively limericks tell the story in a swift, kicky rhythm, while Santat's dynamic, warm-toned, and action-filled illustrations throw a nice nod to kung-fu movies."--Booklist "No helpless, victimized protagonists here--only empowered poultry, ready to make it their mission to "rescue, protect, and defend."--School Library Journal "The wolf from the first two of Schwartz and Santat's ninja fairy tales (The Three Ninja Pigs, 2012, etc.) has finally learned to live peacefully--but the fox has yet to learn that lesson. . . [A] raucous retelling."--Kirkus Reviews "This book will delight fans of fractured fairy tales and martial arts action movies alike!"--School Library Connection
