King for a Day by Rukhsana Khan, illustrated by Christiane Kromer
It is Basant in the city of Lahore, Pakistan and Malik has only made one kite to use in the kite battles over the city. Malik is still sure of himself though, eager to show how fast his Falcon kite is. Malik is especially interested in teaching the bully who lives next door a lesson for all of the times he’s said horrible things to Malik and his sister. He also dreams of being the king of Basant, the best kite fighter in the city.

Then the neighborhood bully emerges again and tries to take a kite from a little girl, but Malik uses his new status as King to solve the problem. 179 more words
