|From The Publisher*||Companion to the hit The Three Ninja Pigs, this fractured fairy tale is a sure-fire storytime hit.|
Wolf just can't catch a break! Ever since the three little pigs started teaching everyone Ninja skills, huffing and puffing just hasn't been enough to scare up a good meal.
His craving for meat sends Wolf to classes at the dojo, and soon he's ready to try out his new moves. A little girl and her tiny granny should be easy targets-right?
Not if Little Red has anything to say about it! Kiya!
|Review Quote*||"Schwartz and Santat deliver a powerful karate chop of a picture book. . . As silly a trip to grandma's house as there ever was." -Kirkus Reviews|
"This action-packed fractured fairy tale is sure to excite young readers. . . . Children will gravitate to the rhyming text and exciting illustrations. . . . A fun read-aloud, but also great for independent reading." -School Library Journal
"Schwartz's comic verse scans beautifully, tripping through the (bamboo) forest to grandma's house with vigor and attitude. Santat's artwork . . . divides the action into diagonal panels, maximizing the roundhouse impact." -Booklist
|Biographical Note||Corey Rosen Schwartz has no true Ninja training, but she can sure kick butt in Scrabble. She lives in Warren, New Jersey.|
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.
