The Story of the Widow’s Embroidery (6 lines)

A widow spent all of her rice money on a painting

she embroidered it and it took her eight years

when she finished, the embroidery flew out the window

The daughters of the Sea King found it and tried to copy it

the widow’s son went to the Sea King’s palace and took it back

the widow spread the embroidery over her home and it came to life

So far in When the Sea Turned to Silver

So far in When the Sea Turned to Silver, Pinmei and Yishan met Lady Meng and are going to go to the City of Bright Moonlight on Lady Meng’s horse, BaiMa. It will be very hard to get there because everything is frozen and it is snowing heavily. They want to get there because the emperor wants a Luminous Stone and they think it might be there. I can’t wait to read more!

Story of Nuwa (in just 6 lines)

The pillars of the sky collapsed and flooded the earth

Sea demons emerged and ate the living

Nuwa, a goddess with the tail of a fish, came down to earth to help everyone

She slew a giant turtle and used its legs to hold up the sky

She gathered five stones of different colors

She couldn’t find one big enough for the last one so she put herself in it
