In See-Saw Girl, Linda Sue Park described the expectations and limitations for a girl growing up in ancient Korean traditional society, and in The Kite Fighters she does the same for two brothers. Both boys have differing interests and skills, but the expectations put on them by their family and society don't match them very well. Played out in the arena of "professional" kite flying, brave decisions and honorable understandings develop in a dramatic ending. A fast, relatively easy read for upper elementary students.

I just finished reading this book aloud to my children, ages 9 (girl) and 7 (boy). They both loved it, as did I. Linda Sue Park has an interesting writing style. She is not overly descriptive - in fact, her descriptions are deceptively simple yet still manage to evoke a vivid scene in your mind. It was very refreshing, as I dislike books that drag out pretentious descriptions over several pages. The story was engaging and my kids clamored for me to read more, wanting to know what happened next. It provides an interesting slice of Korean history and customs without being overwhelming. I'm off now to shop for other books by this author.

What a great book. My children (ages 10,12,13)and I read it together and thoroughly enjoyed it. I wasn't sure I would like it, but it was so beautifully written. LOVED it.

I bought this book because I volunteered to coach a team of 4th graders in Battle of the Books. I wanted to read the books the students were reading so I could help them prepare for the Battle. I thought that reading books written for children would be tedious, but I was pleasantly surprised at how enjoyable The Kite Fighters was. The story is compelling and there are some good life lessons illustrated in the plot.

And, I learned a lot about the sport of kite flying. I never even realized there was so much involved in the constructing of kites and that kite flying can be very competitive.

A good book to read and share with the young readers in your life.

Who needs fantasy when real civilizations have been so diverse? Park's book brings medieval Korea to life through the eyes of two young brothers, one a talented kite maker, the other a skilled flyer. The story never set my pulse racing (which is the only reason I don't give it 5 stars --- I'm fond of thrillers), but hundreds of little details that make the boys' lives different from ours, yet the same, are effortlessly conveyed.

Enjoyable story to learn about the Korean kite culture and family structure. Simple to read, fun to follow, with suspense sprinkled throughout. Can't wait to read it with our kids!
