What Kid Can Resist a Ninja?

The book I am sharing today is for any girl who wants to be a ninja master.   Oh, and its funny, action packed and entertaining to boot.

Don't forget to Follow One Great Book on Facebook, Twitter, Google + and Pinterest for all the picture books that put the wolves of the world in their place.  Go get 'em Red!

Title:       Ninja Red Riding Hood

Author:  Corey Schwartz

Target:   Preschool - Grade 2

What this book is about: 
This book follows the very successful The Three Ninja Pigs.  Now that the pigs have taught the other animals ninja skills, the wolf has not been able to scare up a satisfying meal.  He secretly takes classes in martial arts to even the playing field, and then conveniently runs into Little Red Riding Hood.  When Red discovers the wolf is impersonating grandma, she is ready to battle and her ninja skills save the day.  The defeated wolf decides to become a vegetarian and takes up yoga to handle the stress!

Why I love this book: 
Once again Schwartz has turned a classic fairytale into a ninja tushy kicking adventure story.  The story is told in rhyme which keeps a nice flow, even through the battle scenes.

Of course the gorgeous artwork of Dan Santat makes the narrative come alive.  His illustrations are bold, colorful, funny and extremely appealing.  This is probably why he is in constant demand!

Who this book is for: 
Great for kids who like action and humor in their picture books.

Final thoughts: 
Little Red Riding Hood is no shrinking violet.  She is a wolf wrangling ninja master!
