Where the Mountain Meets the Moon by Grace Lin

5 Stars
Newbery honor book, Beehive

So, obviously, I read this one with Boo.  (If you're on the home page, just scroll down for her review if you missed it Saturday.)  Mister sat in a little, but it didn't hold his attention.

This was a lot of reading aloud, which I don't love, but I really enjoyed the story, as did Boo.  I'm sure she didn't understand quite all of it, but she liked it.

I love all of the little stories within the story-- each set apart with a different font from the main text and titled.  It really emphasized the storytelling traditions. 

And Grace Lin weaves all of these different stories together flawlessly, creating a rich tapestry.

Definitely highly recommended.
