Description: Part folklore, part history, this book depicts the special love that the Chinese have for kites. Beautiful kites were flown high in the sky to make wishes or to send bad luck away. Such a special tradition evolved into the holiday "The Double Ninth Festival", or Festival of Kites, held on September 9th. The exquisite illustrations reveal the symbolism behind the many designs such as butterflies for love and carp for abundance as well as instructions on making your own kite. 1999 32 pp. 10" x 8" Ages 4-10.
