Ninja Red Riding Hood by Corey Rosen Schwartz


Ninja Red Riding Hood by Corey Rosen Schwartz

When you're a hungry wolf in Ninja times, huffing and puffing just isn't enough to get you dinner. So after one wolf perfects his katas at ninja school, he's ready to take on Red Riding Hood and her grandmother-or so he thinks. Turns out, Red's gone to ninja school too! It's going to take Red's best black belt skills to land Wolf on his back, but don't worry-she convinces him to give up Red meat forever.


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
