This past week I have been reading a book called Mouse,the sixth book in the Five Ancestors series by Jeff Stone (who I met thanks to going to the Blue Marble Book Store).In the Five Ancestors Series the main characters (young kung-fu masters) take on names of animals that signify their kung-fu style.For example:Fu means Tiger in Chinese and Fu uses the Tiger style Kung-Fu.ShaoShu (Mouse) stows away on the enemies boat to help his friends Hok (Crane) and Ying (Dragon).Both of ShaoShu's freinds are young Kung-Fu masters.ShaoShu's friends enemies are the Emperor of China,The General Tonlong (Mantis) and his men including his bodyguard,Lei.ShaoShu had stolen Tonglongs Telescope when he was unluckily caught by Lei's cat,Mao.ShaoShu was first a small thief who could squeeze through small spaces and had a knack for stealing stuff when he tried to steal from two Kung-Fu masters and the world changed for ShaoShu and he was serving Tonglong and caught up in China's affairs. I hope this will give you a good idea of what this book is like.
