Kung-Fu Pigs - The Temple of Ghosts

Author and Illustrator - Keith Brumpton

This book was about a poor emperor who was desperate for money. He had heard about a place where he could find lots of treasure but it was very dangerous and there were lots of things in the way to stop him. This place was called the temple of ghosts. The emperor was too scared to go himself so he sent three pigs called Rinki, Dinki and Stinki to the temple of ghosts to find the treasure.

My favourite character in the book was Dinki because she was really funny and she kept everyone safe and made sure that no one got into danger. Dinki was gentle and kind and she had two pigtails.

My favourite part of the story was when Rinki, Stinki and Dinki and all of the hopping ghosts were fighting together. All of the ghosts were bad but in the end it turned out that they were good.

I enjoyed this book because it was really really funny and exciting. All of the class couldn't stop laughing when we were reading it.

I would recommend this book to someone else. I would rate this book 5 out of 5.
