Like a Chinese one thousand and one nights

I am a twelve year old boy who loves culture and this book fascinated me. The fact that stories never die is very present as well as the love of culture building stories. I would recommend this book to children fascinated by culture as well as parents who want to show their children this concept of a story and it's importance.

PS: this novel was so intriguing that I took time off playing video games just to write this review.

We enjoyed the stories within the story

My children (ages 5 and 8.5) enjoyed the book, but I kept noticing the black and white portrayal of the emperor, servants. The novel's construction feels like a beginner's attempt at a novel. The story is sewn with thick thread as we say in Poland.

I read this book when I was a child and the story, the description, and the details are stunning. The narrator has a beautiful voice and the stories within the book are captivating. I highly recommend listening or reading this book.

An amazing Treasure. Highly reccommended

Thank you Grace Lin. What a beautiful and engaging book . ‘When The Sea Turned To Silver’ is a rare & delightful reading experience. My absolute favorite of them all!!
I like that each book may be read by itself . Though the stories weave together.. it is not a “series”.

Really amazing book

they say sequels are never better than the original, but I'd say this one proved that generalization, wrong!
