    A reviewer

    Well fleshed characters are depicted in kid pleasing manner in this fast paced escapade. Malao¿s humor and prank driven temperament is something with which adolescents in the target audience of upper middle grades into high school can quickly recognize. Biting discourse between the various cast list is convincing as well as it serves to prod the yarn along at a ceaseless clip. Writer Stone, himself adopted in infancy, draws upon his knowledge of martial arts as well as his familiarity as an adopted child for wanting to know his birth parents to produce an enticing peek into a timeless tale. Monkey is the second in `The Ancestors¿ series in which five adolescent fighting monks become skilled at dealing with the misfortune of losing the only home and family they have known, along with their seeking answers to their hidden pasts. Monkey is not for the picky. Ying is a terror producing rogue furious battles are described in powerful detail in this chronicle filled with ferocity, machination, pretense and trickery. The description of five youthful warrior monks who managed to evade the seventeenth century desolation of China¿s renowned Shaolin Temple is told through the words and actions of five youngsters each of whom is named for an animal whose fighting skill they emulate.
