Description - The Five Forms by Barbara McClintock

When a young girl finds a mysterious, discarded book of martial arts poses, she ignores the warning printed in bold inside its cover: DO NOT ATTEMPT THESE FORMS WITHOUT AN EXPERIENCED TEACHER! She decides to attempt them herself ... but is shocked to find that doing so conjures real animals right into her home! The chaos escalates as she releases a leopard, a snake, and a dragon, each creature largerand more destructive than the last. It is only once she manages the fifth and final form that things return to normal. But will she be able to clean up the mess she's created before her mother returns home? Award-winning author-illustrator Barbara McClintock's meticulous research and vibrant watercolor illustrations breathe life into this frenzied, fictionalised exploration of China's ancient Five Forms.
