"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
