" An homage to martial arts and the author's son, this book is highly imaginative and fun as well as boldly illustrated. I love the Jumanji feel of the story. " said.

" Loved the art and found myself looking for what the girl's ponytail was doing in reaction in each spread. " said.

" In this tale of martial arts, magic, and mischief, a girl finds a mysterious book. As she attempts the ancient Chinese poses within its pages, chaos erupts. How will our heroine manage the mess she has created?Reviewer 16 " said.

" Practicing a martial arts form leads to surprising results for a young enthusiast. Pair with Jumanji for a double dose of not-following-the-rules. " said.

" Picked this book up thinking it had something to do with the Five Stance form I learned in my Kung Fu class. Disappointed.But still a good read. " said.

" Reminds me of Jumanji. Delightful fun to read and sparked my curiosity to know what the last form is. Do you know?Written and beautifully illustrated by Barbara McClintock. Published by Farrar Straus Giroux.#PB #kungfu #humor #culture " said.

" This book was a HUGE hit with my toddler/preK story time kids. The really focused on the pictures, and they were really participating in the storytelling ("But what if her mom comes home?" "Oh no, the dragon!"). Got lots of "I loved that one!" at the end. Afterwards we talked about our favorite animals and pretended to be animals. Highly recommend for that age group. " said.

" Odd frame with girl picking up a random handmade book on top of a library drop box, BUT inside the book she finds an introduction to five forms of martial arts. As she performs the positions, the animals (crane, leopard, snake, and dragon) come to life and wreck her house. Fantastic illustrations, some are wordless, some have speech bubbles and comic frames, and some have standard text-in-a-box. " said.
