Description

We are delighted to welcome award-winning and bestselling author and illustrator Grace Lin to An Unlikely Story! Grace will discuss and sign her New York Times bestseller and National Book Award Finalist, When the Sea Turned to Silver, a breathtaking, full-color illustrated fantasy inspired by Chinese folklore, and a companion to the Newbery Honor winner and New York Times bestseller Where the Mountain Meets the Moon.

ABOUT THE BOOK:
Pinmei's gentle, loving grandmother always has the most exciting tales for her granddaughter and the other villagers. However, the peace is shattered one night when soldiers of the Emperor arrive and kidnap the storyteller.

Everyone knows that the Emperor wants something called the Luminous Stone That Lights the Night. Determined to have her grandmother returned, Pinmei embarks on a journey to find the Luminous Stone alongside her friend Yishan, a mysterious boy who seems to have his own secrets to hide. Together, the two must face obstacles usually found only in legends to find the Luminous Stone and save Pinmei's grandmother--before it's too late.

A fast-paced adventure that is extraordinarily written and beautifully illustrated, When the Sea Turned to Silver is a masterpiece companion novel to Where the Mountain Meets the Moon and Starry River of the Sky.
