Review: Gave this to my 8 year old daughter who loved it but she said it was probably a bit too simple a read for her (showing off). She loved the story because it had a dragon and a lion and warriors and there was fighting. She really liked the illustrations and has used the book more to copy those rather than reading them again. The font is big and would not take a competent reader long to read. But it's full of action and adventure and what more does a kid want?

Review: It’s Lunar New Year and one of Jack’s favourite times of the year. He, his mum and his grandfather, Yeye, spend it in the Chinese Community Centre, eating lovely food, listening to a storyteller, letting off firecrackers and finishing up by receiving money in red hongbao envelopes. The only thing Jack doesn’t like about Lunar New Year is the story of Nian, the lion-headed beast who hunts humans - and preferably children - but who can be scared off with loud noises and the colour red. Jack doesn’t want to admit it, but he finds Nian very frightening. It’s also Lunar New Year in the Jade Kingdom where Nian is all too real and the people in the kingdom have to take precautions to make sure he stays away. So when the evil Dragon King finds away to cancel out the protection and lets Nian loose to hunt the people, the Kingdom needs the Tiger Warrior to save them. Helped by the Emperor’s daughter, Princess Li, and the zodiac creatures who lend him their powers, Jack has to find a way to scare off Nian, but how can he do that when he’s so scared himself? The 3rd in M. Chan’s TIGER WARRIOR fantasy series for readers aged 6+ continues to make good use of the Chinese zodiac and mythology with Alan Brown’s illustrations adding to its energy. I liked the way Chan shows Jack’s fears and his relationship with the always fearful Rabbit and although the story is a little jumpy, younger readers will enjoy it - especially the martial arts scenes - and it does convey aspects of Chinese culture. I haven’t read the second book in this series, but you don’t need to in order to follow the story here. I enjoyed the way that Chan gives younger readers a good idea of how people in the Chinese community spend Lunar New Year and also how Jack’s mum (who is not Chinese) nevertheless actively tries to keep Jack involved in that part of his heritage. There’s less Yeye in this book and also not so much Princess Li because the focus is much more on Jack and how he has to tackle his fear of Nian. Chan does this particularly well by using the zodiac animal of Rabbit, who is generally afraid of everything, to teach Jack how to face his fears. I enjoyed the relationship between them and as someone whose own Chinese zodiac sign is a rabbit, I liked seeing him have a chance to shine plus he has a pretty cool power that he lends to Jack. I’ve also got a soft spot for Pig who is constantly eating and views everything through whether it affected his appetite. The Dragon King remains a bit of a one-dimensional villain but the target readership won’t really worry about that as he’s suitably mean and evil. Chan puts plenty of action into the book with some good fight scenes but the plot is a little jumpy - again, not something that the larger readership will pick up on but older readers who are helping them may notice. Alan Brown’s illustrations do add to the sense of pace and the manga-style feel works well with the nature of the story. All in all, this remains a perfectly good read that the target readership will enjoy and as a Rabbit, I liked his central role. It’s still not a book that automatically hits my buttons but there’s enough here for young readers who are keen on Chinese mythology and martial arts.
