Product Details


“A magical adventure, which shoots for the moon–and succeeds.”–Entertainment Weekly

★ “The book resonates with excitement and fantasy as Mei and Yun experience magic firsthand while using their wits and brainpower. . . . The story is balanced with imagination, love, sadness, new friends, old foes, and enchantment. . . . Rick Riordan fans will find this story to be entertaining and engaging as the magical adventure unfolds.”—School Library Journal, Starred Review

“Schmidt has nicely woven Chinese mythology and history into a fantastic adventure. Readers will find themselves entranced by Schmidt’s writing, which will draw them in much in the same way that a storyteller captivates listeners when retelling a folktale.”Booklist

“Schmidt creates a beautifully folkloric atmosphere imbued with elements of Chinese culture and myth. Mei, with her gut instinct and fighting skills, and Yun, with his nearsightedness and quick intelligence, make for a compelling lead duo, with plenty of opportunity for comedy and plot-propelling revelations.”—The Bulletin of the Center for Children’s Books

“An entertaining tale . . . . “—The Horn Book

“In homage to her Chinese roots, Schmidt adroitly interweaves fantastical mythology with the historical context of the Ming Dynasty. . . . the twins’ unbreakable bond, paired with rich folkloric details, make for a heartening read.”—Publishers Weekly

“Seamlessly incorporates folklore and magic into a vivid middle-grade adventure about sibling bonds and destiny. . . . Chinese mythology and philosophy play a prominent role in The Dreamweavers, with Schmidt sewing the Jade Rabbit (a popular character in Chinese culture), the dream world, and yin and yang into her spellbinding story. . . . An entrancing story about the power of dreams, helping others and controlling our own destinies.”—Shelf Awareness

“An enchanting tale.”—Kirkus Reviews
