Praise

“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
