Review

Yazul is waiting for spring to arrive in his home in a han, or fortified trading post, on the Silk Road. Building kites with his grandfather occupies his time and flying them helps release his sadness into the sky. Yazul's mother has died and his stern father, lord of the han, seems only interested in business. When bandits surround the han, planning to starve the inhabitants into surrender, Yazul has an idea which may save them…

A touching story set in medieval Mongolia, about a lonely young boy who desperately wants the approval of his remote father. This beautifully illustrated and compelling tale is also a fascinating portrait of another culture and another time.
