Description

Young-sup and Kee-sup, two brothers living in Korea, can't wait for the New Year kite competition. But when the brothers decide to work together in the competition, disagreements arise. Young-sup is a better flyer, yet tradition demands that the first born, Kee-sup, must represent the family. How can they win? Newbery Medal winner Linda Sue Park delves into the world of kite flying while exploring the difficulties children have finding their place in the family.

Professional reviews

"The universal themes of brotherhood, family, and sibling rivalry fill this book with a quality of enchantment. In Korea in 1473, two brothers struggle with their own identities and finding out what makes them each special. Descriptions of the structure of kites and the challenges of flight and competition make for a nice backdrop. Norm Lee has a quiet, innocent tone as he narrates this tale of old. He is a solid narrator and successfully captures young Kee-sup and brother Young-sup, but this audiobook begs for an authentic Korean accent to add to the drama and cultural dimension of the story.
