Julie is back in black! The long-anticipated sequel is here! As readers learned in the first adventure, learning martial arts can be really fun but requires more than just the desire to get a black belt. It takes hard work, commitment, and practice. Now in this second story, Julie continues to value these lessons, but she also learns the importance of friendship and the right attitude. Julie Black Belt: The Belt of Fire picks up as Julie proudly wears her yellow belt and is eager to attain her next rank: orange! Still inspired by Brandy Wu, an action movie star, Julie now meets a new student in her class...but is he better than her? Can Julie learn to improve her abilities while becoming a gracious partner, and ultimately earning her own Belt of Fire? "As with the first book, Charlene Chua's illustrations are bright, cartoon-like feasts of colour that invoke a sense of movement that will keep young eyes flowing from page to page...creating a rather enchanting feeling of watching a movie inside a book...a fun, informative and interesting story that should engage even the most reluctant reader while providing a rich source of information and thought-provoking concepts. Recommended." - CM magazine
