( Rating: 5 Star Rating)

A young kung-fu master sets out on a quest to regain his temples stolen secrets in the martial arts adventure, Tiger. Check out this reviews of this kids book about martial arts and ancient China.

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

    since i was young since i was small, stupid, clueless. in a daze in a faze that the world was a beautiful kind place. convinced life was a big and precious thing. i was sought after by pigs. no not the animals. although the male species can act like animals. they can be ferocious, sex###########d cold-hearted. They can go after you as if you were prey. hunt you down. and kill you. but instead of taking your life. it's your innocence. your right to feel important in life. they make the word "beautiful", sound so fake the way it slides off their lips and into my mouth convincing me it must be ok if i let my guard down i don't enjoy being talked to because you like the way i look i like the way that butterfly looks but i'm not going to catch it and rip it's wings off. you like my face you like my body but you don't like ME enough to stay and treat me like i'm worth something. exscuse me. while i walk away from your filthy hands. but don't touch me. one more crack in my porceline skin. and i'm done. go break someone elses body.

    When I try to come up with ideas, I tend to take a cliche and change elements about it so that it takes on a sort of originality. So, for example, let's say we're taking the cliche of a band of friends (or strangers) hunting a dragon. Instead of their motive being that the dragon is, say, eating innocent villagers or holding a princess captive, that it's a more personal issue. Maybe the dragon is a smaller type with a more mischievous demeanor, and is stealing the characters' valuables as a prank, and the characters want their things back. They might be innocent villagers themselves, unskilled with any sort of tracking or fighting techniques, and hire a sort of mercenary to help them out. But if you wanted a plotless sort of thing with a lot of flexibility, you could have the characters be a band of mercenaries who get hired by people to do various jobs. And if you can find more things to swap out in any idea you come up with, you'll eventually find yourself being in a sort of popcorn machine of ideas. Hopefully, this post has been helpful.
