This first action-packed book of the series follows Fu - young, aggressive, Tiger-style kung fu master - as he struggles to escape the enemy soldiers who are determined to track him down...Over 350 years ago in China, five young warrior monks escaped a brutal attack on their temple. Each monk specialised in a different style of "animal" kung fu. As the young monks scrambled to stay one step ahead of their attackers, they spread the non-violent, philosophies as well as teaching specific fighting skills for defence. Their teachings are rumoured to be the foundation for many martial arts systems and for this reason these young monks are known as The Five Ancestors. In this first action-packed book of the series, Fu - the aggressive, 12-year-old Tiger-style kung fu master - has to learn the importance of self-control. Can he win the hearts of an entire village, and so save himself from the enemy soldiers, by teaching them all the art of understanding?
