Pirate Penguin Vs. Ninja Chicken: Troublems With Frenemies

Book 1 of a series by Ray Friesen. Marietta, GA: Top Shelf Productions, 2011  


A collection of short stories (and one slightly longer story). This is a about friendship blending humor with scenarios that can be great conversation starters, such as when you tell a joke not realizing that it may hurt someone else's feelings. N


OTE: While the book is inviting for all ages, Friesen uses some complex vocabulary. As a result, it may be a great resource to use for enrichment purposes for younger students.


See how to use this book to teach how to motivate students to write dialogue (pp. 63-64) and how to use it to review geometry (p. 135) in Worth A Thousand Words: Using Graphic Novels to Teach Visual and Verbal Literacy.
