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.

    I am a life long student. I love to study and learn and I enjoy factual books but also well research novels. At age 75 I have read lots.

    "Wonderful lessons to live by in this book"
    Would you listen to Where the Mountain Meets the Moon again? Why?

    Absolutely and I will with my Great Grand Children.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Where the Mountain Meets the Moon?

    I love the legend of the Red Thread


    Which character – as performed by Janet Song – was your favorite?

    One of my favorite narrators ... sorry cant chose


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    It was very special and I felt both joy and sadness in places.


    Any additional comments?

    I wish every child (and some adults) could have the exposure to the depth of this story and the wonder of what happens when you let life happen and make unselfish decisions. I am also reading and researching other books by Grace Lin she is a master in her field.

    "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.
