Description

Richly illustrated, this book tells the story of Andile and his father, who make a beautiful kite that they rush to send aloft. To Andile's horror, however, the string breaks—but father and son are magically lifted on an epic journey across Africa. From the thundering Victoria Falls and the snow tops of Kilimanjaro to the Sahara Desert and ancient Egyptian pyramids, the kite’s trajectory takes the travelers over some of the great landmarks of Africa.
