Author: Jeff Stone

A young kung-fu master joins his brothers in a quest to regain their temple's stolen secrets in the martial arts adventure, Tiger.

Five Brothers, One Mission

Tiger is the first book in the Five Ancestors series - the stories of five 17th century, kung-fu warrior monks who hold the key to China's future. Each of the five boys lives at the Cangzhen Temple, where they are taught one of five animal fight styles - tiger, monkey, snake, crane and dragon. When an ex-monk destroys the temple and kills their beloved Grandmaster, the five set out on their own to learn about life and reclaim a set of ancient scrolls. In Tiger, 12 year-old Fu puts his tiger martial arts to the test and learns a lesson of patience and perseverence.

Martial Arts Mayhem

Tiger is a fast-paced book filled with non-stop martial arts action and even some pretty graphic bloodshed. Reading Tiger is almost like watching an explosive Jackie Chan flick or playing King of Fighters on your PS2. In each step of Fu's adventure, he uses kung-fu kicks, tiger hook swords or some of his other formidable fighting skills to continue his quest. But like any good warrior, Fu's adventure requires more than just superior fighting skills. Fu also learns the importance of perseverence, patience and mental strength.


The Bottom Line

Tiger is a great read for fans of martial arts, manga or graphic adventure. It's a classic battle of good and evil with plenty of kung-fu and a few doses of bloodshed, suspense and slap-stick humor. You'll also love the next book in the Five Ancestors series, Monkey, which has just been released.


Tiger Rating: 5
