From School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 2—This humorous parody of a familiar tale, "The Gingerbread Man," is sure to become a hit with the young martial arts crowd. Sensei makes the ninjabread as a reward for his hardworking students. But when he opens the oven, "KA-POW! Out [leaps] the Ninjabread Man, alive and kicking." Children will relish Gall's large, action-inspired artwork. The rhyme and meter of the phrasing are great fun for reading aloud, with a twist on the well-known line in the climatic scene, "Try, try as best as you can, you can't beat me, I'm the Ninjabread Man!" For those who already know the story, Leigh has created a satisfying concluding page. VERDICT Little ninjas will eat this title up, and primary-age children will enjoy making comparisons with the original tale.—Blair Christolon, Prince William Public Library System, Manassas, VA

* "Comically overheated narration... fire-roasted settings and hilariously imagined creatures." -- Publishers Weekly, starred review
Praise for Little Red's Riding 'Hood by Peter Stein and illustrated by Chris Gall:
"It's Gall's bold pictures that give the narrative its horsepower." -- Publishers Weekly
"Gall's digital artwork is filled with bold colors and fine-lined textures. He cleverly uses the vehicles' parts to make their faces, right down to Granny's pearl earrings -- her side mirrors." -- Kirkus Reviews
"The bold, bright illustrations by Gall are full of action and absurdity." -- Booklist

Loved the illustrations. Lots of humorous details, like the mouse slicing a block of cheese with his sword. The "KA-POW!" page spread is great, too. Even the illustrated inside covers are awesome--it shows a dark, winding path with the characters on it.
The last page includes a recipe for baking ninjabread cookies and a helpful glossary of words used in the book ("sensei", "gong", etc.) Paired with the ninjabread men cookie cutters, this makes a great gift for any little kid who loves fun, silly, laugh-out-loud books. It's probably more geared toward boys, but another nice detail is that the snake is a girl.
