The Three Ninja Pigs by David Bedford and Becka Moor (Simon and Schuster Children's Books)

Are you one of those people who always seems to get into trouble even if most of the time it's not actually your fault?
Spare a thought for the three porcine siblings in "The Three Ninja Pigs" by David Bedford and Becka Moor.

They're porky little balls of energy, and are well known for causing chaos wherever they go.  Just lately though, a rather unsavoury character has been following them around and causing even more trouble than they usually do!

Wolves, tsk. Has there ever been a wolf in a story who is more than a whisker away from either scoffing the hero, upsetting his or her granny or generally behaving wolfishly. The wolf in this story always seems to expertly weasel away (sorry, wolf away) before anyone can spot him, leaving the Three Ninja Pigs to take the blame. But come on lads, you're Ninjas! Surely you can work together to trap this fiend and prove your innocence after all?

Fast paced storytelling coupled with action packed illustrations are sure to win over your Ninja horde. Sit them down in front of this book for a moment or two (if you can) and who knows, your busy little Ninjas might calm down a tad too!

Charlotte's favourite bit: Wolf gets his comeuppance in the end! Hooray!

Daddy's favourite bit: A surefire ninja hit for reluctant readers who demand a bit more action from their picture books. This one's positively leaping out of its covers with a gigantic HYYYY-YAHHH!
