I've love all the books in this series. I think they would make great bedtime stories for parents to read to their elementary age kids!

This is a companion to 'Where the Mountain Meets the Moon' but it can be read and enjoyed separate from that book - either way, this is excellent. Lin weaves together the various elements of the story very cleverly, and excels at giving the book a message and making it feel meaningful without being the least bit heavy-handed. So good.

This is a great companion to "Where the Mountain Meets the Moon". It tells the story of Rendi, a boy who has stowed away in the back of a cart and ends up working in an in of a small village. Grace Lin weaves in stories based on traditional Chinese myths to tell both Rendi's story and the tales of the people in the inn. It is great fun and very interesting - I wished I could keep reading it long after the last page.

This book was really addicting! I just couldn't get my eyes off of it! I thought it wasn't going to be too good until I really got into the book.
**** SPOILER ALERT ****
I thought it was a good book because Rendi was really brave to leave his family and i got scared when the bad guys got him.

This is a very good book about a boy named Rendi and his adventure to bring the moon back.

Disjointed at times and lacks the seamless quality of its predecessor.

it's a really good book, though I think it's related to the book Were the Mountain meets the moon...

"In this companion book to Where the Mountain Meets the Moon, a boy named Rendi runs away from home and takes a job doing chores at an inn in a tiny village, where the moon has gone missing from the sky. Rendi is selfish, ornery, and unhappy, but when a glamorous storyteller arrives at the inn, her amazing tales (along with those of other guests at the inn, all of which are based on actual Chinese folklore) help him gather the courage to be a hero and return the moon to its rightful place. Readers who enjoy rich, beautiful language and gorgeously intricate illustrations will be swept away by this enchanting novel."

This wasn’t part of the plan. Not the way he envisioned it, anyway. When Rendi hid in the wine merchant’s traveling cart he naturally assumed it would take him somewhere big and populated. The last thing he expected was to be dumped in the middle-of-nowhere Village of Clear Sky. Now a chore boy in the only inn in the vicinity, Rendi takes his frustrations out on the inhabitants. It isn’t until a mysterious and beautiful lady appears telling strange tales that he finds himself wrapped up in a mystery that may answer a twin problems: The location of the moon that disappeared several nights ago and the reason that only Rendi can hear unknown groans and moans on the night wind.
