A fantasy tale that follows the quest of three sons to retrieve a beautiful tapestry, woven by their mother and based on a vision from her dreams, from the jealous fairies who stole it.

Sanderson combines elements from the Chinese story "The Magic Brocade" and the Norwegian tale "Princess on the Glass Hill" in this seamless, stately picture book for older readers. Anna, whose brocades are known far and wide, awakens one night knowing she must weave what she saw in her dream.

For nearly three years, she is driven by her vision of a marble mansion set among orchards, hills, and streams, but when her tapestry is complete, the winds of the fairies of the crystal mountain steal it. Anna's three sons go, one at a time, to rescue the dream tapestry.
