Starry River of The Sky BSY461

US$16.95

The moon is missing from the remote Village of Clear Sky, but only a young boy named Rendi seems to notice! Rendi has run away from home and is now working as a chore boy at the village inn. He can't help but notice the village's peculiar inhabitants and their problems-where has the innkeeper's son gone? Why are Master Chao and Widow Yan always arguing? What is the crying sound Rendi keeps hearing? And how can crazy, old Mr. Shan not know if his pet is a toad or a rabbit?

But one day, a mysterious lady arrives at the Inn with the gift of storytelling, and slowly transforms the villagers and Rendi himself. As she tells more stories and the days pass in the Village of Clear Sky, Rendi begins to realize that perhaps it is his own story that holds the answers to all those questions.

Newbery Honor author Grace Lin brings readers another enthralling fantasy featuring her marvelous full-color illustrations. Starry River of the Sky is filled with Chinese folklore, fascinating characters, and exciting new adventures.

  月亮消失了!但是,似乎只有男孩仁迪發現這件怪事。他離家出走,意外來到偏僻荒涼的晴空村,在客棧裡當打雜的小夥計。這個村莊的奇特居民,以及他們所面臨的種種問題,教仁迪相當好奇──深夜傳來的嗚咽聲,究竟是怎麼一回事?客棧老闆的兒子怎會失蹤?比鄰而居的趙老闆和嚴寡婦竟為了蝸牛而反目成仇?瘋瘋癲癲的山先生怎會分不清自己養的是蟾蜍或兔子?

  有一天,神祕的常夫人住進了這間客棧。她陸續說出一則則神話,晴空村的時光也日復一日的流逝……仁迪漸漸明白:或許,他自己的故事正是所有問題的答案!
