In the mountain, a young girl named Minli lives in a ramshackle hut with her parents. In the evenings, her father regales her with old folktales of the Jade Dragon and the Old Man on the Moon, who knows the answers to all of life's questions. Inspired by these stories, Minli sets off on an extraordinary journey to find the Old Man on the Moon to ask him how she can change her family's fortune. She encounters an assorted cast of characters and magical creatures along the way, including a dragon who accompanies her on her quest for the ultimate answer.
Grace Lin, author of the beloved Year of the Dog and Year of the Rat, returns with a wondrous story of adventure, faith, and friendship. A fantasy crossed with Chinese folklore, Where the Mountain Meets the Moon is a timeless story reminiscent of The Wizard of Oz. Her beautiful illustrations, printed in full-color, accompany the text throughout. Once again, she has created a charming, engaging book for young readers.
Great origin and storyline
I have not downloaded this book but I did buy and read it at a store and let me tell you, this is a very good book. It includes Chinese mythology and a good storyline that ties in with it. The details and the stories that Ba tells help the characters have a background. 📚📖📘📙📕🤓🤓🤓🤓🤓
One of the best books!
This books is really amazing! I love the stories, and the talking goldfish as well. I love how creatively the author designed Dragon’s problem about flying. The ending is so beautifully described, and the action and emotions never let down. This is an amazing book!
