for King of the Skies by Rukhsana Khan, Rick Jacobson, and Laura Fernandez
Before dawn on the day of Basunt, the first day of spring, a boy pulls himself up to the roof, to launch is kite into the skies. He is eager to get his kite airborne. He has worked long and hard to make his the best kite ever. It's small, but built for speed, with two long streamers that look like legs flying over the rooftops.Through skill and daring he battles with the other kites -- big kites, little kites, fancy and plain kites -- and beats them all. For it is on this one day that he is better than everyone else ... on Basunt, he is king of the skies.
