From School Library Journal: 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, Minliís 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 everyoneís destiny.

Determined to change her familyís 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 Minliís 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 authorís writing is elegant, and her full-color illustrations are stunning. Minliís determination to help her family, as well as the grief her parents feel at her absence, is compelling and thoroughly human.
