Sun Setting

"Where the Mountain Meets the Moon" by Grace Lin is an amazing adventure story. I love the stories within the story that filled the book. And the illustrations are a beautiful addition to the book.

Little Minli see how hard her parents work for she, too, is in the fields working alongside them. She wants to help and at the suggestion of a talking fish, she sets out to find the Old Man of the Moon who, based on her father's stories, will help her find the answer to good fortune.

Her trip is enhanced by the many characters she meets along the way like the flightless dragon and the orphan boy. Her many adventures teach her resourcefulness and using her wits to trick a group of greedy monkeys and win the help of a king.

A wonderful and encouraging book for young and old alike.

I rate Where the Mountain Meets the Moon 5 out of 5 stars.
