Sam can't wait to try out his new kite, but Dad says he's too small to fly it alone-it needs someone bigger. When Dad launches the kite, a strong wind pulls it into the sky. But the wind is so strong that it pulls Dad up, too! Only one person can rescue this runaway kite, and Sam knows just who that someone is. With bouncy text-in a combination of rhyme and prose-and cheery art, this whimsical story is just right for anyone who's ever felt not big enough.

In Emmett's (Bringing Down the Moon ) winning fable about competence and confidence, young Sam believes he's old enough to take the reins of his new kite, which Reynolds (Harry and the Dinosaurs ) depicts as larger than the young hero (and nearly as large as Dad).
