Pirate Penguin and Ninja Chicken are the best of friends—and the worst of enemies. They fight a lot, but their fights usually end up with them making up, sharing a smoothie, or sneaking away to avoid getting in trouble. Ray Friesen’s Pirate Penguin vs. Ninja Chicken is a colorful, cheerful, goofy book that’s a lot of fun for kids—and will probably hold some chuckles for grownups as well. Enjoy!
