When the Sea Turned to Silver - Grace Lin

Staff Pick

When the brutal Tiger Emperor takes Pinmei’s grandmother Amah from their village, the young girl and her friend Yishan mount a quest to rescue the older woman by bringing a Luminous Stone to the Emperor. Grace Lin has crafted a beautifully illustrated epic, replete with magical creatures including a snow-white dragon horse and mussels that turn into birds. As with previous works Where the Mountain Meets the Moon and Starry River of the Sky, the reimagined Chinese legends so seamlessly interwoven into the narrative contain clues to unlocking the greater mysteries of the girls’ adventure. This is an elegant and majestic, yet action-filled and thrilling tale for readers young and old—and it all started When the Sea Turned to Silver (Little, Brown, $18.99). Ages 9-12.
