From Publishers' Weekly:

In this launch of the Five Ancestors series, a quintet of orphans live at Cangzhen Temple with their Grandmaster in 17th-century China. "Fu ("Tiger") credibly comes through as alternately sympathetic and maddening, true to his adolescent nature," said PW in a starred review, "and the martial arts scenes will keep even reluctant readers flipping through the pages." Ages 9-12. (Mar.) (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved
