~I received Hensel and Gretel: Ninja Chicks for the purpose of reviewing. Opinions and stories are my own.~
From the team behind The Three Ninja Pigs and Ninja Red Riding Hood comes Hensel and Gretel: Ninja Chicks written by Core Rosen Schwartz and Rebecca Gomez and illustrated by Caldecott Medal winner Dan Santat. This is a fun read-aloud picture book with a fractured fairy-tale that will leave you wanting more!
These ninja chicks are anything but chicken!
When Hensel and Gretel’s dad gets snatched by a fox, the sisters put their ninja skills to work to track him down before he can be stir-fried.
But are these two little chicks ready to take on a dark tangled forest, a tricky house made of corn bread, and an even trickier fox?
This plucky pair isn’t giving up without a fight! Kiya!
Picture books that are unique are what really grab children’s’ attentions and have them asking for more books. This one is so cute and funny and full of awesome that my girls want me to hunt down the first two books so they can read more about ninjas in fairy tales. We have all read many versions of Hansel and Gretel but this one is about ninja trained chickens who must head into the forest and try and find their dad who was taken! Follow their crumbs to the house made of corn bread and see how they fight a tricky fox.
