Staff Reviews


The final installment in Grace Lin’s trilogy (Newbery Honor Where the Mountain Meets the Moon and Starry River of the Sky), When the Sea Turned to Silver is just as gorgeous and fun to read as the first two. Lin also illustrated the series, and When the Sea Turned to Silver includes illustrated headings and eight full-color illustrated plates. When Pinmei’s grandmother is taken by soldiers, Pinmei and Yishan set off on a quest to rescue her. Their adventure is infused with legends and heroes. Readers familiar with the previous books will enjoy becoming re-acquainted with a few favorite characters, but When the Sea Turned to Silver is a stand-alone and can be appreciated on its own. Illustrated.
