Publisher's Summary

At 11-years-old, Malao is the youngest of the Five Ancestors. Master of the monkey fighting style, he's curious and quick, fast and fun-loving. But now, with the destruction of the temple and the deaths of his older brothers and Grandmaster, Malao the fun-loving monkey is forced to face things he'd rather not. As he grapples with these new and unwelcome feelings Malao has an encounter with a dangerous band of bandits, is adopted by a troop of monkeys commanded by a one-eyed albino, and hears tantalizing rumors of a mysterious recluse called the Monkey King, who is said to act, and look, a lot like him.
Don't miss the rest of The Five Ancestors series.

Good for kids, not so good for adults

My sons (9 and 11) loved this entire series. However, I found that the stories were not as exciting, nor as well-written as they could have been. I frequently found that my mind would wander as I was listening to them, and that I would lose the thread of the story just because the language wasn't all that interesting, nor were the twists and turns of the story particularly surprising or exciting.
