Xinyue, his brother Qiliu, and their mother are seekers, hunting aweto--a rare, plantlike treasure--along the legendary Silk Road. After one outing, Xinyue discovers the offspring of a deity that creates aweto--and becomes the little creature's reluctant caretaker. He soon struggles to keep it safe and keep it a secret. And that's before he learns that warriors from the deity's village are on his family's tail...

Booklist Review: "Xinyue, his brother, and his mother travel the Silk Road in search of awetos, magical plants that harness much-coveted medicinal powers. With the help of his drum, which controls insects, Xinyue and his family attack a village that honors a deity that, in turn, houses a baby aweto. Before the diety dies, however, it asks Xinyue to take care of its baby, and Xinyue reluctantly becomes the aweto's father figure, hiding it from his family as they continue their travels. Nie Jun has centered his luscious, dreamy fairy tale around a perky, funny, yet morally conflicted boy and an adorable creature that looks like a hybrid between a baby and a giant carrot. Both the kaleidoscopic color palette and swirling brush strokes are as whimsical as the story, making it a joy to read even when Xinyue and the aweto are in danger. Readers will want to escape into the vast, watercolor landscapes as well as the crowded marketplaces with its varied inhabitants and candied plum suckers. An enchanting, beautifully crafted adventure for children and adults alike."
