From the award-winning author of Peter Pan in Scarlet
(of which we still have copies) comes another prize-winning story packed with action and adventure and a real taste of life in Ancient China. Haoyou knows that his father's spirit is living high above him in the sky and he knows it is his time to follow his father - so, strapped to a kite he is sent to fly among the clouds. Ages 10 and up.
Haoyou knows that his father's spirit lives among the clouds above Ancient China. He also knows that to save his mother from being forced into a new marriage he must now follow in his father's footsteps and take to the skies, riding a kite through the clouds and the spirits of the dead. Then the Jade Circus offers him a chance to escape his enemies and travel throughout the empire, and maybe even perform before Kublai Khan himself. But is going with the circus really the best option? It could be that the circus master is leading him into even greater danger. This outstanding story is like nothing else you've ever read - packed with action, adventure and emotion.
