Synopsis: Tigerclips along at a lightning pace!Eoin Colfer Twelve-year-old Fu and his temple brothers Malao, Seh, Hok, and Long dont know who their parents were. Raised from infancy by their grandmaster, they think of their temple as their home and their fellow warrior monks as their family. Then one terrible night, the temple is destroyed by an army led by a former monk named Ying, whose heart is bent on revenge. Fu and his brothers are the only survivors. Charged by their grandmaster to uncover the secrets of their past, the five flee into the countryside and go their separate ways. Somehow, Grandmaster has promised, their pasts are connected to Yings. Understanding that the past is the key to shaping the future, the first book in the series follows Fu as he struggles to find out more and prove himself in the process. Fus name literally means tiger, for he is the youngest-ever master of the fierce fighting style modeled after that animal. From the Hardcover edition.
