About the Author

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

Rebecca J. Gomez has been writing stories and poems for kids since she was five years old. She also loves to hike, draw, and play games with her husband and their three children. She also co-authored What About Moose? with Corey Rosen Schwartz.


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.

Reviews

"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
