Pirate Penguin vs Ninja Chicken, Volume 1: Troublems with Frenemies

( 5 )

Overview

Pirate Penguin and Ninja Chicken are friends. Or maybe they're enemies. Heck, if they can't keep track, then how can we!? Whatever they are, they're definitely hilarious. We 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 smoothies or making fun of your friends (just like real life!), and sometimes the story gets really epic-tastic, filled with spaceships and giant ...

Overview

Pirate Penguin and Ninja Chicken are friends. Or maybe they're enemies. Heck, if they can't keep track, then how can we!? Whatever they are, they're definitely hilarious. We 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 smoothies or making fun of your friends (just like real life!), and sometimes the story gets really epic-tastic, filled with spaceships and giant monsters and evil koalas and stuff (just like real life!). Plus, since it's about pirates, there are at least 17 swordfights (that's the rule with pirates).
Perfect for friends, enemies, and "frenemies," this full-color collection of wacky adventures will keep you cracking up with no "troublem."

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
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. (Sept.)¦

    Hilarious!

    A friend of mine gave me this book and I'm so glad he did--it's hysterical. Good for kids and adults--suitably silly but also smart.

    Perfect for Comic Book Lovers

    This graphic novel / comic book cracked me up...I read it before giving it to my 10 year old nephew. It contains several fun stories about a pirate penguin and a ninja chicken. What a fantastic premise.
