About the Author
Corey Rosen Schwartz has no true Ninja training, but she can sure kick butt in Scrabble. She lives in Warren, New Jersey.
Dan Santat is the creator of the Disney Channel’s animated hit The Replacements and also holds a black belt in Shotokan. He lives with his family in Los Angeles.
“Schwartz and Santat deliver a powerful karate chop of a picture book. . . As silly a trip to grandma’s house as there ever was.” —Kirkus Reviews
“This action-packed fractured fairy tale is sure to excite young readers. . . . Children will gravitate to the rhyming text and exciting illustrations. . . . A fun read-aloud, but also great for independent reading.” —School Library Journal
“Schwartz’s comic verse scans beautifully, tripping through the (bamboo) forest to grandma’s house with vigor and attitude. Santat’s artwork . . . divides the action into diagonal panels, maximizing the roundhouse impact.” —Booklist
