    3.5 stars.I ve always been a martial arts junkie.

    By the author s own admission, quite a bit of creative license was deployed in this fictionalized biography of Bruce Lee I liked that the book focused on his journey as a martial artist, as well as the historical context and conflict in which Bruce grew up, but there were characters who seemed like they might be important, but then we re not explained Which events are real and which are made up That always frustrates me with books like this, especially when they are billed as biography.

    A DELICIOUS graphic novel Read it in one sitting I ve already recommended it to a bunch of kids who contact me for summer reads I didn t know Bruce Lee s story, just the details my dad shared with my about Bruce s life This book was very enjoyable and kept me entertained both with the storytelling and the gorgeous artwork A DELICIOUS graphic novel Read it in one sitting I ve already recommended it to a bunch of kids who contact me for summer reads I didn t know Bruce Lee s story, just the details my dad shared with my about Bruce s life This book was very enjoyable and kept me entertained both with the storytelling and the gorgeous artwork

    I think if you re going gloss over, fictionalize, and imagine parts of Lee s life in what looks like a graphic biography for kids, you should mention that at the beginning and not at then end in an author s note.

    Great introduction to Kung Fu legend Bruce Lee Great for Teens Fine for as young as middle school, if they have an interest.

    Huh I was disappointed by this one for one big reason it completely glossed over, to the point of omission, the incredible racism Lee encountered in America, constantly outperforming others but never cast as a lead because he was Asian His wife caught flak for their interracial marriage, as well I m flummoxed as to why these weren t included It s such an important part of his story, and the story of the US I learnedthan I ever have about Bruce s childhood, which was interesting at fi Huh I was disappointed by this one for one big reason it completely glossed over, to the point of omission, the incredible racism Lee encountered in America, constantly outperforming others but never cast as a lead because he was Asian His wife caught flak for their interracial marriage, as well I m flummoxed as to why these weren t included It s such an important part of his story, and the story of the US I learnedthan I ever have about Bruce s childhood, which was interesting at first, but I kept wondering when Di Bartolo was going to get to his adulthood as the page count dwindled I ll buy this book for my library, but it won t teach kids of the full import of Bruce Lee and his philosophy, which is a real shame So many could benefit from Lee s thoughts about life and martial arts, fromabout the adult he briefly grew into, but the book focuses on his childhood tendency to get into fights A bummer.Digital galley acquired through edelweiss

    This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers To view it, click here It sounds like the author had great appreciation for Bruce Lee s work and it made me want to look up some of his filmsbut I can t get past the I just made up stuff when there wasn t information about what happened author s note at the end of the book.

    I couldn t disagreewith some of the negative reviews Key point this is meant for 8 12 year It s meant to convey some details about Bruce Lee in a fun and adventuress fashion It s not anyinaccurate than movies about him, wherein taking artistic liberty to convey aappealing story is part of the business It s a comic book for goodness sake You don t chose a children s comic book if you want a riveting and accurate depiction of the life of Bruce Less who, yes, faced racism, an I couldn t disagreewith some of the negative reviews Key point this is meant for 8 12 year It s meant to convey some details about Bruce Lee in a fun and adventuress fashion It s not anyinaccurate than movies about him, wherein taking artistic liberty to convey aappealing story is part of the business It s a comic book for goodness sake You don t chose a children s comic book if you want a riveting and accurate depiction of the life of Bruce Less who, yes, faced racism, and was also not a faithful husband But, those are deep themes that are not particularly appropriate when trying to inspire a young child to find the fun in reading and motivate them to read further.If you are interested in a child s review versus the adults one listed in here my seven year old loved this book My daughter, who loves the Dogman series, read this book in one day I was a little worried that this book might be above her reading capability but when I opened the book, it contained comic images and writing similar to Dogman Sure enough, my daughter devoured it and kept quoting interesting facts and tidbits she gleaned from it concerning the life of Bruce Lee It was a fun and educational read, however inaccurate and edited As a parent, I highly recommend this book to children who enjoyed the Dogman series It does a lot to encourage children to read
