A Single Pebble : A Story of the Silk Road

By Bonnie Christensen (Roaring Brook Press – 2013)                                                   On a spring day in ninth-century China, young Mei gives her father a small jade pebble to carry on his journey selling silk along the road. A single pebble follows that piece of jade as it travels from China through central Asia to Europe, from merchants to acrobats to pirates, and finally to a boy who lives near Venice, at the other end of the long road.>>>A note on the Silk Road is at the last page, and the maps of silk road also found inside of front/back cover pages.
