Additional Notes

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 NoteCorey Rosen Schwartz has no true Ninja training, but she can sure kick butt in Scrabble. She lives in Warren, New Jersey.
