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. Download and start listening now!

    " LOVED IT :) I loved how the story was told using Asian folktales. I loved the true meaning of happiness and I agree! Great story for 4th grade - adulthood! "

    " One of this year's Sunshine State Readers. It was wonderful! I loved how all the stories within the story tied together, and that most were based on Chinese folklore. I also loved the illustrations and that they were modeled from photos of China and Chinese woodcut style art. I laughed at parts, and even cried. I think this is one that I will be recommending to my students this year! "

    " Nice story...I have enjoyed all of Grace Lin's books...my favorite story was the story of how the moon got in the sky and the overall theme of being thankful for what you have was lovely:-) Another great story by Grace Lin! "

    " This is such a fantastic book! Also, as a read-aloud, it was a very smooth read and I found myself wanting to continue reading chapter after chapter. Of course, my daughter loved that because she didn't want me to stop either. It has life lessons, mystery, fantasy, and stories within the story. I would recommend this to anyone, young and old. In my opinion the read alone level is probably 5th or 6th grade and up. "
