KIRKUS REVIEW

A delightfully silly book, with action pictures reproduced in gay flat colors, and with running story captions. A Chinese boy named Fish persuaded his father, Honorable Fish, to buy him the biggest fish-shaped kite he could find. Honorable Father did just that (and the trip through the market is very fascinating for small readers)- and then the big wind took a hand, and off went little Fish, holding fast to his kite string-bound for slapstick adventures, which end with a parachute descent into a fisherman's net. Lots of laughs for one of Kurt Wiese's most entertaining books.
