This companion volume to Where the Mountain Meets the Moon and Starry River of the Sky is every bit as magnificent and masterful as the first two. The story opens in the depths of winter as Pinmei’s beloved Amah, the Storyteller, is kidnapped by the Emperor while all the men of their village are conscripted to work on building a giant wall. With the help of her friend Yishan, shy, quiet Pinmei finds the courage to set off to rescue her Amah. Along they way Pinmei learns that she, too, has the gift of telling stories. It is through these stories that she is able to piece together where her Amah is being kept and why. The folk tales are woven seamlessly into the narrative, both enhancing Pinmei’s adventure, and standing equally as well alone. This is a must read for fans of the first two. Highly recommended for grades 3 & up.
