In Starry River of the Sky, the moon is missing from the remote Village of Clear Sky, but only a young boy named Rendi seems to notice! Rendi has run away from 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.

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

Newbery Honor author Grace Lin brings readers another enthralling fantasy featuring her marvelous illustrations. Starry River of the Sky is filled with Chinese folklore, fascinating characters, and exciting new adventures as book 2 following Where the Mountain Meets the Moon.
