I had forgotten all about both these books.
I know that I read the 5 Chinese Brothers. I don’t recall reading Harold.
Never read the right but it looks racist lol
Love Harold!! So imaginative
Each brother has a unique special power.
That’s what I’m here for.😊
I kind of liked the story as a kid, if I remember right the first one is sentenced to death, but since he has twins that can cheat different forms of death he asks to say goodbye to his family, and switches whatever twin can survive however they’re trying kill him. I think one example was a brother that can stretch his neck, so they try to drown him but no matter how deep he is in the water his head stays above it. It’s silly but hey it’s like a huge middle finger to the death penalty so that’s points in my book.
I definitely remember the rubber brother. I had forgotten the storyline until you just reminded me of it. I loved the book as a child.
