Indie Jones: Independent Comics & BooksJulie Black Belt
"Hereís another book that is perfect if you want to get younger children into comics. Plus itís a positive story for female readers, an audience that is never given enough attention in comics. JULIE BLACK BELT follows a rambunctious and impatient young girl who aspires to become a kung fu champion, but just doesnít have the patience to put the time and energy into what it takes to earn a black belt. The story is a lesson in determination, persistence, and resolve. Itís a positive tale that encourages hard work and persistence and itís entertaining and charming to boot. Written by Oliver Chin and illustrated by Charlene Chua, this book does a good job of teaching the discipline of martial arts and the lesson that hard work pays off."
