   Another winner from Grace Lin
We're huge fans of Grace Lin's work in this American-European family. Where the mountain meets the Moon and Starry River of the sky, I read them so much that I loved them before bedtime TWICE each. The words flow beautifully, the stories are wonderful... and this book is almost as good-which means it's fantastic.
   For my Asian Daughter
Bought this for my Chinese daughter, who lives in Canada and refuses to recognize her Asian roots. She loved the book and actually related to the girl in the story, and started asking about some of the traditions she read and seeing some that we practice. This is a good peek into culture.
   A thoughtful read. Great for a kids' book club!
My daughter is almost 9 years old. She enjoyed reading this book. This main character Pacy is on a quest to find herself : is she Chinese-American? Japanese-Taiwanese? Or is it just American? Her American friends at school find her Chinese culture so distinctly different, so that a small girl insensitively tells her that Dorothy is not Chinese in the Wizard of Oz, because she is not Chinese. To China - girls is not authentically Chinese as she doesn 't speak the language. They leave her out, telling her that she is Americanized or a girl calls her A Twinkie, white on the outside, yellow in the interior. However, the book is more than that particular dilemma that I mention here. It is a great read and the book ends on a high note.
I am eleven, so I probably recommend this book only for people over the age of... maybe 10. I found it pretty boring ''.
   Fantastic author and great book!
It was one of the best author visits I have seen. Afterwards, many of my students were searching the library by Ms. Linn for other titles. 0 )
   Great story!
My fifth graders and I read together this book. They loved learning about Pacy and her life and even more when they realized it is a true story of the author's life.
   Well written, thoughtful and fun read
I hope that she read it again when she can read herself and understand more of the nuance. But I was amazed how happily she even gobbled the story now.
   Fun story
The story was well written and engaging and very relatable for my child. I highly recommend '' this book.
   Fourth graders enjoy these books in guided reading groups.
Grace Lin does an incredible job of enchanting readers with stories that also teach Chinese legends and customs. At least in the books I have read, Lin tells the main story with interspersed storieslegends. They are very short, so the reader doesn 't lose track of the main plot. I read both serieses aloud with fourth graders and loved them. I have had the kids finish the rest of the series on their own.
