Someone Bigger by Jonathan Emmett
Sam and Dad have made a kite. They have made it large. They have made it light. They go out on a windy day to see if they can fly it but the wind blows hard and Dad thinks Sam's too small to fly the kite. It needs someone bigger - or does it? A witty and rollicking story, which serves as a cautionary tale to bossy adults everywhere. Adrian Reynolds became a household name with Harry and the Bucketful of Dinosaurs, sales of which exceed 90,000 copies in the UK, and has been shortlisted for the Children's Book Award.
