King for a Day

Looking at the illustrations in this picture book, I get some reassurance that we might yet see spring here in Michigan!

A boy in Pakistan competes in Basant, the annual kite festival; whoever captures the most kites becomes “king” for a day.

The story is full of excitement and the artwork adds lovely details, combining to present an exuberant celebration of wind and flight.
