9780064410915: The Kite Rider

Up and up the wind drew him.
Haoyou looked about him and saw the whole
world beneath him. And it was his.

The Great Miao, master of the Jade Circus, offers Haoyou the amazing chance to escape his family's poverty -- by becoming a kite rider. Strapped onto a beautiful scarlet-and-gold kite, Haoyou is sent into the sky, earning money, freedom, and unexpected fame. Miao even plans for Haoyou to perform before Kublai Khan himself.

From Carnegie Medalist Geraldine McCaughrean comes a dazzling story of adventure, betrayal, family, and sacrifice set in the dramatic world of thirteenth-century China.

About the Author:

Geraldine McCaughrean is the Printz Award-winning author of The White Darkness. She has been honored with England's most prestigious children's book award, the Carnegie Medal, and is the only three-time winner ever of the Whitbread Children's Book Award. She also wrote Peter Pan in Scarlet, the first official sequel to the treasured masterpiece Peter Pan, and the critically acclaimed The Death-Defying Pepper Roux. Geraldine lives in Berkshire, England, with her husband and actress daughter.

From AudioFile:

When 12-year-old Haoyou's beloved father is killed, he must protect his little family from greedy relatives and from Di Chou, the ship's filthy, loutish first mate who caused his father's death. Haoyou manages, with the help of Mipeng, his cousin, to shanghai Di Chou. Before he returns, they run away with the Jade Circus, where Haoyou becomes a kite rider, soaring among the clouds, finding an affinity with the sky spirits. Below, Mipeng pretends to interpret "spirit messages" from the sky, and Chinese history unfolds like a paper fan. Eventually, Haoyou meets Kublai Khan and is conscripted into the Mongol army. Cynthia Bishop narrates the Full Cast audio production, as thrills, near-death experiences, and meticulous historical detail of thirteenth-century Chinese culture make this considerably more than a YA novel.
