The Emperor and the Kite (Paperstar Book) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Largely ignored by her own family, Princess Djeow Seow spends her days playing with a kite made from paper and sticks. But when the Emperor is imprisoned in a high tower, only the Princess can save the day, flying her kite high up into the sky to rescue her father. ?A familiar jewel polished to unaccustomed brilliance.? ? Booklist ?It is rare to find a book where the beauty of the language and image are so finely meshed as in this tale of loyalty and love.? ? United Press International Jane Yolen lives in Hatfield, Massachusetts and Scotland. Ed Young lives in Hastings-on-Hudson, New York.

Synopsis:

When the Emperor is imprisoned in a high tower, only Princess Djeow Seow can save the day, by flying her kite high up into the sky to rescue her father. A Caldecott Honor Book.
