I always enjoy reading books in this series. This one is about Bruce Lee. I had known that he was a kung fu hero and that was it. I learned much more about him after reading this title. Young readers will learn that Bruce was not perfect but he found his way. Born in Hong Kong, he lived both there and in the U.S. He had talents, including being a child actor, a great dancer and a master of the martial arts but…he was also involved in a gang. Sent back to the U.S. by his parents, Bruce went to school and college and began teaching his style of martial arts. He went on to become famous for his movie, Enter the Dragon. The book concludes:
And by having faith in himself and never giving up, little Bruce became a hero for everyone, and the person he always dreamed he would be.
What a perfect message that is.
Of note are the illustrations in this book. They have a cartoon like quality and fit the text perfectly.
Many thanks to NetGalley and Quarto for this book in exchange for an honest review.
