Where the Mountain Meets the Moon

Where the Mountain Meets the Moon by Grace Lin

recommended by Emily B.

This is the story of Minli, a young girl of modest means who embarks on a quest to find the Man in the Moon to ask him how to change her family’s fortune. Along the way she meets a flightless dragon who becomes her best friend, as well as a poor buffalo boy, a king, and a pair of children, all of whom help her along her way. It has all the makings of a fable and a fairy tale, with danger and adventure, difficult choices and heartwarming moments, and an important lesson delivered gently but poignantly. This book is broken into small chunks that are perfect for reading to children before bedtime, although they –and you– may not want to put it down!
