Someone Bigger

Sam and Dad have made a kite. It’s big. It’s light. It should fly just right. But one windy day, when they go out on the hill, Dad says Sam is too small to fly the kite – it needs someone bigger! Can Sam prove him wrong? Adrian Reynolds’s bold illustrations capture the antics of a blustery day in this sweet and funny story, which serves as a cautionary tale to bossy adults everywhere.
