Horn Book Review

In this whimsical takeoff on "The Gingerbread Man," a venerable panda sensei bakes an extraordinary cookie, a Ninjabread Man, who comes to life ("KA-POW!") and challenges each fierce animal ninja. Ninjabread Man defeats them all until he's outwitted by the fox, as in the traditional tale. Lively, cartoonish illustrations depict all the zippy martial-arts action, while playful language adds to the entertainment. (c) Copyright 2017.
