The Five Ancestors Book 6: Mouseby Jeff Stone
Synopses & Reviews
Little street urchin ShaoSu has always wanted to belong. His small size makes him an easy target for bullies and baddies and this little “mouse” always needs a place to hide. When he is befriended by Hok and Ying, he thinks he has found a new family, and eagerly tags along as they continue on their travels. What he doesn’t know is that his new friends are the most wanted criminals in China, and their adventures will land him in the middle of a battle not only for their lives, but for the future of China itself.
As the characters rush towards a dramatic conclusion to the Five Ancestors series in this, the penultimate title, Jeff Stone has again created a marvelous story, a compelling voice, and a ton of exciting action.
Small in size and always a target of bullies, street urchin ShaoSu is happy to have been befriended by Hok and Ying, but ShaoSu's life takes a dramatic turn when he discovers that they are the most wanted criminals in all of China and ends up in the midst of a fierce battle for their very own survival!
Summary: In seventeenth-century China, orphaned ShaoShu, who can squeeze into small spaces, puts his life in danger when he becomes a spy for a young band of warrior monks known as the Five Ancestors and bravely infiltrates evil Tonglong's camp.
