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.

Reviews

"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
