From the Publisher
Annotation Adventure, compelling characters, and folktales swirl through this fast-paced middle grade novel about a little girl's quest to find happiness for her family. Farmers living in extreme poverty by Fruitless Mountain, Minli's parents work very, very hard with little to show for it. Although Minli's mother is rather negative, her father shares wonderful stories about Never-Ending Mountain and the help the Old Man on the Moon likes to give. Minli sets off to find these places for herself, meeting a dragon, a boy, and others along the way.
Editors Note This Newbery Honor book features magic, adventure, friendship, and even a dragon who can't fly!In the valley of Fruitless 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.
