Book review: Hensel and Gretel Ninja Chicks, by Corey Rosen Schwartz and Rebecca J. Gomez, illustrated by Dan Santat

Schwartz, Corey Rosen and Rebecca J. Gomez.  Hensel and Gretel Ninja Chicks.  Illustrated by Dan  Santat. Penguin Random House,  2016.  $17.99. ISBN  978-0-399-17626-5. 33 pgs.  4-10 years of age. P9/Q8

This book is a fun spin on the classic Hansel and Gretel story. The children are little chicks, who have trained in the arts of ninja, I might add.  The witch is a sly fox and he has kidnapped their papa.  The author has cleverly and creatively made this classic fairy tale story fresh and entertaining for readers.  It is written with a rhyming flow that is full of humor as well.
