From School Library Journal:

Grade 2-4 A picture book with a sophisticated theme that will be of limited appeal to children. The boy's narrative of his life and growth begins when his father "married the beautiful daughter of a farmer." A stoneworker by trade, the man began to fly beautifully crafted, highly imaginative, almost other worldly kites. When his wife died after the birth of their son, the man stopped making kites until the baby showed delight in a scrap of kite caught in the wind. Kites made then take on special meaning for both father and son, reflecting their changing relationship as the boy matures. Ultimately, the boy becomes a young man ready to travel in the world alone. Although the father first resists, together they create one gigantic kite made from all of the early kites. It and the young man are set free. The full-page illustrations extend onto the next page. Bordered in white, the text appears in broad white space on the left of each double page. The effect is an open, appealing format that showcases each carefully crafted, detailed watercolor. Rather than a picture book in which text and illustration extend the other, these paintings illuminate the quiet, introspective narration, adding an element of fantasy and nostalgia to it. The symbolism will not be understood by the young, although the book may have special appeal to an older audience. Maria D. Salvadore, District of Columbia Public Library
