Kirsty's mother is dead and the girl is still grieving. Her grandfather understandshe's lost his daughter, after alland tries to reassure her. He teaches Kirsty to fly a rainbow-striped kite, noting that she is like her mother in her tenacity and willingness to try. As she masters kite-flying, some of Kirsty's other habits slip awaylike her needing a night light, or worrying whether her mother can see her from heaven. A day arrives when Kirsty is willing to let the kite go, too. Stilz's story twists and winds through the turmoil of a child's grief, respecting the many facets of mourning rather than distillingand thus oversimplifyingany one aspect. Colored pencil drawings portray Granddad's kindly concern and his comfortable paunch, as well as Kirsty's radiance as she comes to terms with her loss. All ages.
