      • content: otter - This book was pretty good... But not my favorite. Minli's family lives in a tiny house, and they can barely feed their pet goldfish. They live on Fruitless Mountain, where no plants grow healthily. Minli hears about the old man of the moon, who can grant your wishes. Minli sets off to find him, and along the way, she meets so many things. At the end, she discovers she can only be granted one wish, and she is torn between her friend's wish and her family's wish.

        Starred review from July 1, 2009
        Gr 3-6-Living in the shadow of the Fruitless Mountain, Minli and her parents spend their days working in the rice fields, barely growing enough to feed themselves. Every night, Minlis father tells her stories about the Jade Dragon that keeps the mountain bare, the greedy and mean Magistrate Tiger, and the Old Man of the Moon who holds everyones destiny. Determined to change her familys fortune, Minli sets out to find the Old Man of the Moon, urged on by a talking goldfish who gives her clues to complete her journey. Along the way she makes new friends including a flightless dragon and an orphan and proves her resourcefulness when she tricks a group of greedy monkeys and gets help from a king. Interwoven with Minlis quest are tales told by her father and by those she meets on the way. While these tales are original to Lin, many characters, settings, and themes are taken from traditional Chinese folklore. The authors writing is elegant, and her full-color illustrations are stunning. Minlis determination to help her family, as well as the grief her parents feel at her absence, is compelling and thoroughly human."Jennifer Rothschild, Prince Georges County Memorial Library System, Oxon Hill, MD"
