Publisher's Summary

A breathtaking fantasy inspired by Chinese folklore, a companion to the Newbery Honor winner Where the Mountain Meets the Moon.

Pinmei's gentle, loving grandmother always has the most exciting tales for her granddaughter and the other villagers. However, the peace is shattered one night when soldiers of the emperor arrive and kidnap the storyteller.

Everyone knows that the emperor wants something called the Luminous Stone That Lights the Night. Determined to have her grandmother returned, Pinmei embarks on a journey to find the Luminous Stone alongside her friend, Yishan, a mysterious boy who seems to have his own secrets to hide. Together the two must face obstacles usually found only in legends to find the Luminous Stone and save Pinmei's grandmother - before it's too late.

A fast-paced adventure that is extraordinarily written, When the Sea Turned to Silver is a masterpiece companion novel to Where the Mountain Meets the Moon and Starry River of the Sky.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your Library section along with the audio.

    Story
    "Like a Chinese one thousand and one nights"

    I am a twelve year old boy who loves culture and this book fascinated me. The fact that stories never die is very present as well as the love of culture building stories. I would recommend this book to children fascinated by culture as well as parents who want to show their children this concept of a story and it's importance.

    PS: this novel was so intriguing that I took time off playing video games just to write this review.
