* "The joyful, exuberant protagonists are set against broad expanses of field and sky, and plenty of white space. This cheerful picture book is a felicitous blend of short text and brightly colored mixedmedia illustrations. It is a winner for storytimes."--School Library Journal, Starred Review

"In this breezy kite affair, the adorable duo of Bear and Mole is back again, reveling in nature. . . Sophisticated compositions are cinematic or sequentially kinetic, cleverly matching the author's playful use of onomatopoeia. Muted tones that begin the tale give way to darker and more dramatic hues, creating a powerful shift, both visually and emotionally. This gentle and charming read-aloud will make young audiences 'awww' with delight."--Kirkus Reviews

"Bring this out on a breezy day to inspire a session of kite-making or wind exploration, or share it as part of a kite-themed storytime."--Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books
