   schema:description ""Every year, for as long as anyone can remember, the Mountain has moved a little northwards. But now it's moving in the opposite direction and it's picking up speed. Pema is sent by his grandparents to consult the Sisters of the Snow, the Keepers of the Mountain, but his enquiries are met with stony denial. Singay, a rebellious apprentice Sister knows different and secretly shows Pema cracks in the rock. Then she invites him inside the Mountain where they meet Rose, the Meteor Driver who is literally trying to hold everything together. This unlikely trio embark on an epic adventure which leads them far beyond the safe, closeted world they know. As they learn the terrible truth about the Walking Mountain their journey becomes a race against time to save the entire planet from disaster. Set in a future world in which greed, corruption, hypocrisy and blind ignorance threaten the very fabric of the planet, Joan Lennon's novel has all the qualities of a classic quest - peopled with a fabulous cast of extraordinary characters and animals, it is witty, lyrical, dark, powerful, and constantly surprising. At its heart is the friendship between three disparate and unforgettable characters, a bond that has the reader cheering them on until the novel's extraordinary conclusion." -- Provided by publisher."@en ;
