Dear Reader,

I was inspired to write BENJI & THE GIANT KITE because I loved flying kites when I was a kid.  There was a giant kite at the toy store that I wanted more than anything else in the world so I worked in my mom's garden to make enough money to buy it. I remember how happy I was when I went to the beach and flew that kite so high that it was just a speck in the sky. I hoped it would fly forever.  When my dad said we had to leave, I let go of the string. Maybe the giant kite is still up there?  My new book is a valentine to kites, the beach, and the joy of letting go!

Let's go fly a kite!
