Starry River of the Sky

Mystery abounds in the remote Chinese village of Clear Sky. The moon has vanished and nobody, except a young boy named Rendi, has noticed! Add to this a host of peculiar village inhabitants and strange problems arising with every moment, and the only hope of explanation seems to lie with the arrival of a strange storyteller. Where has the innkeeper’s son gone? Why are Master Chao and Widow Yan always arguing? What is the crying sound Rendi keeps constantly hearing? These threads of mystery come together through Chinese folklore to create a book of enthralling fantasy and gripping invention.
