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.

About the Author:

Adrian Reynolds became a household name with Harry and the Bucketful of Dinosaurs, sales of which exceed 90,000 copies in the UK, and has been shortlisted for the Children's Book Award.

From School Library Journal:

PreSchool-Grade 1-When Sam and his father embark on a day of kite flying, the boy repeatedly asks to hold the string, but is told that he is too little. As the kite gathers strength, it carries off first his father and then many unsuspecting people who happen to be in its path-including a bank robber, a bride and groom, a postman, and a policeman on a horse. Sam is told by all in a repeated refrain: "No, you're too small/-This kite needs/someone bigger." Finally, the child proves his worth by seizing the string and winding the kite and all of the hangers-on to safety. Reynolds's colorful watercolor cartoons depict the bouncy adventure, which is told in singsong verses. Sam sums it up with, "I'm not too small, and as you see,/this kite needs someone/JUST/LIKE/ME!" Young readers will appreciate the boy's predicament and love the fact that, despite his small stature, he saves the day. A great choice for storytime and one-on-one sharing.
