Book Summary

The moon is missing in the remote village of a clear sky, but only a young boy named Rendi seems to have noticed!  Rendi was run away from the 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 whether his pet is a toad or a rabbit.

One day, a mysterious lady arrives at the inn with the gift of storytelling, and she slowly transforms the villagers and Rendi himself.  As she tells more stories and the days pass by 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.

Newberry 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.
