Matt McFlack and his Flyaway Kite is a charming children's book about a toy with a mind of its own.

Matt spends all his money on a kite -- blue, yellow and white. But the kite has its own ideas about where it wants to go. Will Matt be reunited with his kite?

Children will warm to Matt and his troubles through the whimsical rhyming verse and the gentle illustrations which leave plenty to the reader's imagination.
