Easter is a very special holiday in my village of Vreedenhoop in which the children of many ages make and decorate kites to fly in celebration of Easter. Another part of kite flying is when mischievous children cut down kites by attaching a razor to their own kites. In this story the main character Anya deals with a mean boy named Joey who lives next door. While flying kites, Anya learns a valuable lesson of friendship and family. Children will enjoy the sneaky plots of the mean neighborhood boy as well as the colorful illustrations.

Kite flying is a sport native to South-East Asia and the Indian subcontinent. Symbolic of both freedom and control, the kite has been used as a metaphor in classical Indian literature, poetry, language and folklore. Uttarayan, a kite festival celebrated in the state of Gujarat, is not merely a religious observance, but also a time when young and old come together in celebration; a time when differences hold little meaning… The culture of flying and fighting kites, its history, politics, language, and the commerce that lies at the core of the Gujarati way of life provide an interesting backdrop to the celebration of Uttarayan. The buying of kites, preparations in the kitchen and the rooftop wars all form a part of this colourful festival. A Different Freedom explorers the world of the kite, as it travels and changes through the centuries, to its current form and the festivities associated with it in modern day Gujarat.

In 1599 in the harbour of Ternate Dutch voyagers observed a method of fishing utterly outside their experience: a fishing line suspended from a kite flown from a boat. Astonishing to Europeans it might have been, but nothing exceptional to fishing communities throughout the seas of the Indo-Pacific region. Infrequently sighted, rarely described, sporadically collected, the authors provide an indispensable account to the understanding of the gentle art of kite fishing: its locations, its methodology, and of the different designs of the kites in the sheltered waters of the tropical archipelagos of Micronesia, Melanesia and Indonesia.
