Pirate Penguin vs Ninja Chicken (Book 1)

Troublems with Frenemies

This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.


Pirate Penguin vs. Ninja Chicken (Book 1): Troublems with Frenemies. So what is this book about? It's about a Pirate Penguin named Pirate Penguin and a Ninja Chicken who isn't (ninjas are too sneaky to let you know their real names. Hint: It isn't Harold.) They are the bestest of friends and also the worstest of enemies all at the same time (just like in real life! Only more cartoony of course.) I think you'll like this book, there are about a bajillion jokes inside, and it's filled with action, adventure and arguments. Sometimes the stories are really teeny, about stuff like ice cream or origami, and sometimes the story gets really epic-tastic, filled with spaceships and giant monsters and evil koalas and stuff (just like real life!). Plus, being about pirates, there are at least 17 swordfights (that's the rule with pirates). You'll just have to go ahead and read it to see if you like it, I've run out of back cover room to convince you how awesome it is anyway. (How awesome? SO AWESOME!)

From Publishers Weekly

Oct 03, 2011 – Pirates and ninjas going head-to-head is a familiar comedy-action trope, but Friesen gives it an energetic twist by making the pirate a penguin and the ninja a chicken. And by making them friends... sort of. The pair pass the time by sparring verbally and physically but also by hanging out, taking on mutual enemies (like Camouflagey Chameleon and Steve the Owl the Drycleaner), and, eventually, joining forces against an interdimensional monster summoned by Kung Fu Koala. Like many recent print comics, this one was brought into the world as a web comic and has the episodic format that is common to that medium. Still, the personalities of the colorful characters build over the course of the two- or three-page stories, and they re fully realized by the time readers get to the second half of the book, a long story called The Biggest, Giantest Epicest Pirate Penguin Versus Ninja Chicken Story Evar! The characters are definitely the focus; backgrounds are often empty in panels, so there s no real sense of the world in which Penguin and Chicken live. The banter between the two often falls flat, too, not quite rising to the level of screwball comedy it aspires to. Ages 9 12.
