I loved the way the characters' separate stories were connected. Each character has lessons to learn before the moon can be restored to its rightful place. The novel is illustrated throughout with beautiful pictures. Of course the language is as beautiful as the illustrations. Throughout the main story are enchanting short stories that are great reading on their own. I'd recommend this to fans of fairy tales looking for a chapter book to read. Those with an interest in Chinese culture and folklore will be particularly interested in this book.
