I'm always on the lookout for YA/MG books that don't feature romance, and thankfully this one didn't. This is really a "boy friendly" book in that regard. Also, there are a lot of martial arts fight scenes in this.
However parents should be advised that there does seem to be a bit of gratuitous violence for this audience, so it's something to be aware of if you want to shield your kids from that sort of thing.
Again, the best feature of this book is that ...more
This is a YA book...that stands for "Young Adult". The emphasis here is on the "Young". This book it seems to me is aimed largely at preteen to young teen boys. It's full of fights, bodily fluids (including but not restricted to mucus and feces)... The dialogue, well it's really sort of elevating it some to call it dialogue but there you go. Anyway ...more

I couldn't put them down. Very interesting. Funny, sad, surprising, action packed and mysterious. What more could you ask for? If your kiddos are into kung fu they will like these.
Definite thumbs up for boys!
Kedysi v dávnych dobách základnej školy, som vďaka môjmu úžasnému talentu a skromnosti vyhrala v nejakej tej súťaži knihu. Knihu, ktorú som prečítala ja a kamarátka a všetci čo naokolo chceli, tak veľmi sme z nej boli hotový. Samozrejme, že to bola táto kniha.

kali ini berfokus pada Fu sang macan (dooh...??) yang mengalami peristiwa setelah penyerangan kuil dimana dia berlatih.
