David has just moved house; new surroundings without the support of familiar people. Perhaps if he can make a kite and join the children on the hill he will find friends. But does he have the right materials?
The day that David moved to Fivehills,
The first thing he noticed was the kites.
Little kites, big kites
Eagle kites, pig kites
Golden Frog kites with car headlights for eyes
Mirror kites singing the sky back at itself…
David knows that to fit in at Fivehills, he needs a kite. But when he makes one, the other kids of the town aren't too impressed. They say it needs this, then it needs that, then it needs something else… soon David's kite doesn't feel like his any more. But David remembers what his Grandpa said - "Let's see what we've already got. More often than not, we'll find the answer inside" and learns that when you're happy with yourself, friends will follow.
