Description

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. 

The author

Simon Mole is the poet from the pub, that rapper from the beach, the friendly guy with the big eyes who told that story. His infectious enthusiasm for seeing and re-seeing the world around him is an open invitation for you to do the same. Simon’s groundbreaking one-man show ‘Indiana Jones and the extra chair’ sold out two London runs, and toured nationally, while hi second, No More Worries, toured nationally in 2015 – reaching over 1200 audience at 9 venues, including Latitude and Wilderness festivals. His first theatre piece for children, Friends For All, was commissioned by the V&A in 2016 and has since toured around England. He has a vast amount of experience across the UK, creating workshops for schools, Pupil Referral Units, museums, prisons, and hospitals. Kites will be his first picture book. Simon lives in Maidenhead, Berkshire.

Oamul Lu is an illustrator and animator who was born—and still lives today—in China. His art depicts the world he sees, hears, and experiences in daily life, and he hopes that people will be inspired to live their own wonderful life by his artwork. Held in Love is his first picture book.
