Riffing on The Wizard of Oz but based in Chinese folklore, Where the Mountain Meets the Moon is a magical adventure with a lot of heart. It's the story of Minli, the daughter of poor farmers who barely scrape by. Inspired by her father's tales and a magic goldfish, Minli sets off to find the Old Man of the Moon and learn the secret of good fortune. Along the way she encounters royalty, dragons and fantastic stories, and through them she learns what good fortune really means. Based on the 2010 Newbery Honors book, Where the Mountain Meets the Moon is a beautifully-told fantasy that will keep kids entranced as they join Minli on her journey. Learn More

“You have been my friend. That in itself is a tremendous thing.”
Funny, touching, and true, Charlotte’s Web is a story of beginnings, endings, and beginnings again. It follows Wilbur from his perilous runthood all the way to the bright lights of the County Fair. Idealistic Fern Arable; Templeton the rascally rodent; and that wise weaver of words Charlotte A. Cavatica each has an important role to play in his success. Friends can emerge in the most unlikely places—and the power of friendship can work miracles. In his writing for young people, E.B. White neither talks down to them nor alters his style. He remembers vividly his own youth and knows that children are deeply curious about some of life’s most profound questions. White’s animal characters, drawn carefully from his own keen observations of the natural world, also grapple with profound questions. As one reviewer wrote, “There’s not much in the book Charlotte’s Web. Only love, death, courage, hate, beauty, friendship, fear, revenge—just everything in life.”
