King for a Day
By Waking Brain Cells
Khan has captured a unique festival in Pakistan that is vivid, visual and offers children the ability to take on the city for a day. Khan has a nice touch with the kite battles, creating drama by sharing details but also making sure that the story is fast-paced and interesting. Kromer’s illustrations are a beautiful mix of paper art and textiles. Using textiles from the region brings in the deep colors and textures. The paper arts capture the crispness of the kites in the sky and also the beauty of the people. The mix of the two has a richness that suits the subject.
