Julie Black Belt

When Julie takes a kung fu class, she thinks getting a black belt will be easy. But her bold teacher says guess again! As reality doesn't match her expectations, Julie wonders what would her matinee idol Brandy Wu do?

Can Julie take her lessons to heart? Only then can this "white belt" pass her next test to show her brother, parents, and heroine this sport's true spirit.

Colorful and energetic illustrations capture both high-flying action and purposeful reflection. Julie is a refreshing character whom children everywhere can identify with. This engaging tale of "kung fu enlightening" shows what real kid power is!

“Finding a female Asian heroine in a children’s book is a pleasant surprise . . . Parents struggling to instill values in their children will appreciate the persevering young heroine who forgets external rewards while focusing on internal goals. The illustrations, reminiscent of ‘The Incredibles’ animated film, are bright and crisp. Take a look at this book. You might even see yourself in Julie.”
