Additional Notes

From The Publisher*

The ninja animals try to outsmart him, but the Ninjabread Man is one tough cookie!

"Try, try, as best as you can, you can't beat me, I'm the Ninjabread Man!"

In this fun spinoff of the classic "Gingerbread Man" story, Sensei makes an age-old recipe for ninjabread. But the cookie escapes from the oven and runs loose!

Can the Ninjabread Man trick Ninja Bear, Ninja Snake, Ninja Mouse, and Ninja Fox? In the end, the clever Ninja Fox outsmarts the Ninjabread Man.

This action-packed ninja adventure features a wise sensei, adorable ninja animals, and one hard-to-catch cookie -all brought to life by award-winning Dinotrux illustrator Chris Gall!

Review Quote*

Praise for Little Red's Riding 'Hood by Peter Stein and illustrated by Chris Gall

"It's Gall's bold pictures that give the narrative its horsepower." -Publishers Weekly

" Gall's digital artwork is filled with bold colors and fine-lined textures. He cleverly uses the vehicles' parts to make their faces, right down to Granny's pearl earrings -her side mirrors." -Kirkus Reviews

"The bold, bright illustrations by Gall are full of action and absurdity." -Booklist
