When you're a hungry wolf in Ninja times, huffing and puffing just isn't enough to get you dinner. So after one wolf perfects his katas at ninja school, he's ready to take on Red Riding Hood and her grandmother-or so he thinks. Turns out, Red's gone to ninja school too! It's going to take Red's best black belt skills to land Wolf on his back, but don't worry-she convinces him to give up Red meat forever.
