Publisher's Summary

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.

    "Great book, great narrator"

    I am so excited finishing this book. It is like a all-star Chinese fairytale, the main storyline is well designed, and many Chinese folklores are smartly integreted within. Even supporting characters are famous and have their own wonderful legends, that why I call it all-star. I love the book.

    Story
    "I Really Loved Where the Mountain Meets the Moon!"

    I was intrigued by the book from beginning to end not wanting to put the book down. I Love Minli the main character and all the different stories in the book. The narrator did a great job all throughout the story, however my only disappointment was that It skipped a part on one of the chapters and went directly to the next. That was really weird but overall the book it self made up for it because it's amazing!

    Story
    "Story within stories"
    What did you like best about this story?

    My children (9, 6, 3) were all invested in the book because there are many stories within the the book. All were highly descriptive with a very likable main character.


    What about Janet Song’s performance did you like?

    She was able to perform many character voices without being campy. Never distracting from the story itself.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes... and no. We don't hang out in the car that long!

    "Amazing story, great voice!"

    Such a touching and captivating story from the beginning. We listened with our 7yo son and he loved it as well. The reader's voice made it that much more enjoyable
