Overview

Tiger (The Five Ancestors Series #1) by Jeff Stone

Twelve-year-old Fu and his temple brothers Malao, Seh, Hok, and Long don’t know who their parents were. Raised from infancy by their grandmaster, they think of their temple as their home and their fellow warrior monks—their “temple brothers”—as their family. Then one terrible night, the temple is destroyed. Fu and his brothers are the only survivors. Charged by their grandmaster to uncover the secrets of their past, the five flee into the countryside and go their separate ways. Book #1 follows Fu as he struggles to find out more and prove himself in the process.

A masterful start for Jeff Stone! Set in ancient China, this is about 5 young warrior monks and their life paths after a tragic end to their Temple. Tiger, the first of 7 books, tells the story of Fu, the Tiger monk. Fast paced and engaging, I imagine that children ages 9 and up (especially young boys who play sports) will love the tempo and characters. It ends with a tantalizing teaser which makes you long for more!

Fu is really cool, and so is this book :)

This book was much more than I expected it to be. When I first picked up I thought that it was just a book about a boy who did kung fu but it was so much more than that. Jeff Stone has presented historical facts about martial arts and Chinese culture in a way that's non-confusing and not complicated so its easy for kids to read. And even though its written on a low grade level, I've still learned a lot from it and I think other people my age would to. A definite must-read for anyone who likes and adventure and a mystery.

Hi

Tiger is the 1st book in The Five Ancestors Book.  Fu, is Cantonese for Tiger.  Fu has been trained by the Grandmaster in the art of Tiger Kung Fu fighting.  He has been raised with other orphaned boys in a Temple and each is taught a style of kung fu.  The Temple is attacked by a former student, Ying, who hates the Grandmaster and kills everyone in the Temple except his former five brother. Tiger is the adventures of Fu after escaping.   As a school librarian, I see this series as being particularly interesting to my boys.  I am sure that girls will also like it, but am always on the lookout for books that will grab the interest of some of my reluctant readers. Lots of action, kung fu fighting make the books almost seem like you are involved in a computer game which will attract the interest of students.   Great addition to the library.

This book is for anyone who loves an action and adventure with a new twist in every chapter. It leaves you wondering who will Malao go with Hok or Fu? That is why I'm giving a five star.
