Tiger (Five Ancestors #1)
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.

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!

BUT HE LOVED THIS BOOK. Couldn't wait to get his hands on it when he came home from school.
It's based on the origin myth of kung fu: that there were five elders or ancestors and each fought like a different animal. In the story, the five are orphans, aged 11-16, who are being raised as "warrior m ...more
Tiger, the first book of the series, took me a bit to get into it (thus 4 instead of 5 stars), but at that point--the point of no return--I found myself getting into the story and the main character, and I was hooked. The plot is about five orphan brothers who live in a secret temple in 15th-century China. The brothers are name ...more
I don't rate these books because I don't know how I would feel about them now - after all, they were written for young children (most likely boys) and I'm not 11 anymore...
