But what Malik is looking forward to most is doing battle from his rooftop with Falcon, the special kite he has built for speed. Today is Malik's chance to be the best kite fighter, the king of Basant. By the end of the day, Malik has a big pile of captured kites. He is the king! But then the bully reappears, trying to take a kite from a girl in the alley below. With a sudden act of kingly generosity, Malik finds the perfect way to help the girl. A lively story introducing an age old festival.

I loved this book. The illustrations are stunning & I love that the protagonist is in a wheelchair. While this is clear from the illustrations, it's not a direct focus of the story. The story also focuses on bullying. Get this one for your kids, 1st grade & up.
