Read in December, 2009

This was a magical book, in more than one way: beautifully written, it has the feeling of a classic adventure tale (grounded in Chinese folklore) that carries you along from one story and adventure effortlessly to the next. Minli is a wonderful heroine from the start, and the story never loses its pace, but carries you on as she learns and discovers and helps others as she herself is helped. The cover and interior art are also beautiful, making this book a work of art inside and out.
