This is book 4 of a fantastic series. Think Kung Fu Panda if it was a book and the animals were people, and you're extremely close to the story's main plot: a Buddhist temple gets destroyed by an ex-monk seeking revenge on the grandmaster, and the only survivors are the 5 youngest monks who also happen to be the youngest monks in history to become kung fu masters. Each child is a master of a different Kung Fu style-Tiger, Monkey, Snake, Crane, and Dragon. The 5 orphans must seek help to stop the ex-monk and his army from destroying more temples and trying to conquer ancient China. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0375830782, Paperback)

Hok, a crane-style Kung Fu master, is also a master at hiding. For the past 12 years, she has hidden the fact that she is a girl. Now her rogue brother, Ying, and his army have placed a huge price on her head. Fortunately, she manages to make it to Keifeng where she finds her mother and a "round-eye" with the very funny name of Charles. Together Hok and Charles start to make some sense of the magnitude of Ying's plans.
