This story is about a man named Ming Lo who tried to move a mountain. He tried four times! First he tried to move the mountain with a tall and thick tree. Next he tried to scare the mountain away. Then he asked the Spirit to move the mountain. Finally Ming Lo and his wife took down their house and danced backwards. Does the mountain finally move? You'll have to read the book to find out.

I liked the book because it took place in China. It is a wonderful story and it even won a Blue Ribbon Award. Ming Lo reminded me of my mommy because he is great and my mommy is great, too.

I really recommend this book because it is a funny book. I recommend this book also because it has great pictures. If you like China then I think you will like the story because it takes place in China.
