A high-flying fantasy adventure that will blow readers away!
Every kite Oliver touches flies straight into the ground, making
him the laughingstock of Windblowne. With the kite-flying festival
only days away, Oliver tracks down his reclusive great-uncle
Gilbert, a former champion. With Gilbert's help, Oliver can picture
himself on the crest, launching into the winds to become one of the
legendary fliers of Windblowne.
Then his great-uncle vanishes during a battle with mysterious
attack kites--kites that seem to fly themselves! All that remains
is his prize possession, a simple crimson kite. At least, the kite
seems simple. When Oliver tries to fly it, the kite lifts him high
above the trees. When he comes down, the town and all its people
have disappeared. Suddenly the festival is the last thing on
Oliver's mind as he is catapulted into a mystery that will change
everything he understands about himself and his world.
Inspired by the work of Diana Wynne Jones, debut author Stephen
Messer delivers a fantasy book for boys and girls in which the
distance between realities is equal to the breadth of a kite
