“Kick back with this picture book biography that packs a punch!”

“A great read for fans hoping to share their love of Rush Hour, Supercop, and Jackie Chan's original brand of martial arts with their ready-to-tumble tyke.”

“Twist, tumble, and train alongside Jackie Chan in this picture book from lauded author Kristen Mai Giang and illustrator and Hong Kong native Alina Chau. Discover how Jackie used his goofball acrobatics to make a name and a style all his own.”

“A sweet story spiced with cultural humor and life lessons.” — Kirkus Reviews

“Incorporating the Chinese belief that foods have warm and cool characteristics, Giang’s story artfully demonstrates how achieving balance results in positive outcomes.” — Booklist
