The moon is missing above the Village of Clear Sky, but only a young runaway named Rendi seems to notice, in this companion to the Newbery Honor Book Where the Mountain Meets the Moon, for readers 8 and up. Rendi finds work as a chore boy at the inn, and wonders at the inn's peculiar inhabitants and their problems. One day a mysterious lady arrives, and her gift of storytelling slowly transforms her listeners, including Rendi himself. And as the days pass, he begins to realize that perhaps his own story holds the answers to all his questions, in this tale steeped in Chinese myth.
