When Floyd's red kite gets stuck in a tree, he tries to get it unstuck--by throwing all kinds of things up into the tree: his shoes, his cat Mitch, the family car, the front door of his house, a rhino, a whale--you get the picture. Nothing works. Finally, something does work, and it's not what you would expect! This is one of the zaniest, most hilarious picture books that I have read in a very long time, one that will surely appeal to adults and children alike. Its large format would make it a great choice to read aloud to a class. 2011.
