The great thing about these kites, most no larger than an 8 1/2" x 11" piece of paper, is that they are simple to make and simple to operate, yet they show off an exciting variety of aerodynamic capacities. "A how-to book that opens with a description on the artistry and usage of kites in the Orient and a look at the aerodynamic principles involved in kite flying. This step-by-step guide to creating 17 kites adorned with symbolic images such as the sun and a phoenix supplies a grid to help crafters decorate each piece before making the necessary measurements and folds...An attractive addition."--School Library Journal. The author lives in Winnipeg, Manitoba. 96 pages (all in color), 8 1/2 x 10. NEW IN PAPERBACK
