In this Newbery Honor Book, Moon Shadow is eight years old when he sails from China to join his father, Windrider, in America. Windrider lives in San Francisco and makes his living doing laundry. Father and son have never met.

But Moon Shadow grows to love and respect his father and to believe in his wonderful dream. And Windrider, with Moon Shadow's help, is willing to endure the mockery of the other Chinese, the poverty, the separation from his wife and country, even the great earthquake, to make his dream come true.

Inspired by the account of a Chinese immigrant who made a flying machine in 1909, Laurence Yep's historical novel beautifully portrays the rich traditions of the Chinese community as it made its way in a hostile new world.

From AudioFile:

Using a hushed storyteller's voice, B.D. Wong performs the story of the trials and tribulations of Moonshadow and his father, Windrider, Chinese immigrants to the New World. This story of strife and toil is told in a manner true to its ancient roots. Throughout the tale, the listener is engaged with the characters' struggles for a better life and fulfillment of their dreams. The tale is as well-crafted as Windrider's kites, and flies along as father and son try to make their way in a strange land. Although this is historical fiction, the story is deftly narrated as a fairytale, a choice that adds to its mystique.
