Kody Kapow centers on a Chinese-American boy named Kody who spends the summer with his grandparents in a small village in China. His grandfather, a martial arts master, teaches Kody ancient lessons of mindfulness, which Kody employs as he and his cousin Hana set off on adventures in the village on a quest to solve problems and help their neighbors. Kody is not a ninja, samurai or even a superhero. He’s a funny, optimistic, spirited, if not over-enthusiastic young boy who wants to be a hero. But Kody isn’t perfect. Like many kids his age, his enthusiasm is often two steps ahead of his abilities. And it is through his adventures that Kody becomes more disciplined, a better listener, and gains a greater sense of self.
