Format: Hardcover
WHERE THE MOUNTAIN MEETS THE MOON is a sparkling story of a young girl who wants to help her struggling parents by bringing good fortune to the family.

Minli sets off on an adventure determined to find the Old Man of the Moon. This man is said to bring good luck and fortune to people, and Minli and her family desperately need it. Her mother is always complaining about being poor, and her father keeps things joyful by telling imaginative stories.

While on her journey, Minli meets a handful of quirky, amazing characters, including a talking fish and a flightless dragon who help her in her quest to find the Old Man.

Minli is a heroine in a story that is part fantasy, part real life. The author weaves magical ideas and characters together that add another element to an already sweet story, making this one a novel that you don't want to miss.

I originally got this book from the library, but once we were half way through had to buy it for our home. I read this book aloud to my 6 and 7 year old and we had so much fun... not since Charlotte's Web have we had a book that we enjoyed so much. My kids begged for more chapters each night, asked wonderful questions, and naturally made connections with their own experiences. We debated what the secret of happiness could be and when revealed at the end, reflected on what our family could do to work towards that greater happiness. The narrative is sophisticated; like the red threads of destiny the bits of the story pull together in the end. My girls, however, found their memories of some of the earlier details fuzzy by the end. However, it didn't hamper their enjoyment. Instead, we finished the book one night and then began it again. We are about half way through our second read and I think we are enjoying it even more now that they are able to see how the pieces fit together. More than any novel we have read to this point, this has taught them to be active readers and interact with their text - we've discussed foreshadowing, motivation, internal and external conflict, theme, atmosphere and mood. Lastly, the illustrations are beautiful and inspired a great deal of dragon artwork in our house. For independentn reading, I'd recommend a grade 4 and up reading level, but this is really a lovely read together selection for parents and children from grade 1 on.

Format: Paperback
A beautifully illustrated novel cleverly woven of various Chinese folk tales all in one story.
Not only is the book well written, the art work is striking and memorable.
A book that will definitely be treasured!

Terrific story, simply written with lots of imagination, life lessons, and learning to follow your path. It was recommended to me by a friend and I loved the book and would have easy kept going...but the book ended.
