Evelyn and the Kung Fu Headmaster is a fast-paced story that doesn’t waste any time jumping right into the action! It was a fun, crazy adventure that young readers will really enjoy going on!

This is a really good transitional book for readers that are just branching into the young readers books. It’s still a young, clean read, but it’s a bit older than a juvenile fiction story. It’s filled with amazing adventures that are perfect for this age range. I would have liked to see a bit more world building throughout the story, which was the only downside for me. It’s a short book, and we could have spent a bit more time describing the amazing surroundings.

Overall, this was a fun, exciting story that is perfect for young readers and will keep them entertained!

To Read or Not To Read:

I would recommend Evelyn and the Kung Fu Headmaster to readers that enjoy a quick science fiction story!

“Just two hours and fifteen minutes?” Evelyn exclaimed, thrilled.
“We’ll be taking a supersonic plane,” said Guillermo expertly.
“Also known as the rocket plane, it’s the fastest way to get to China.”

Born in a London factory and destined to live with the eccentric scientist Ronald for the rest of her life, Evelyn runs away in utter despair and begins her adventure when she bumps into a young and muscular kung fu champion called Guillermo.

Seeing her talent, Guillermo flies her halfway across the globe to his high-tech martial arts university on a picturesque mountain in China.

Evelyn flourishes in the whole new world. She enjoys her new-found freedom. But soon, the time has come when she must fight Victor – a force of evil which is terrorising the whole world.

Is Evelyn ready for the challenge?
