Kites by Simon Mole, published by Frances Lincoln Children’s Books

David knows that to fit in at Fivehills, he needs a kite. But when he makes one, the other kids of the town aren’t too impressed. They say it needs this, then it needs that, then it needs something else… soon David’s kite doesn’t feel like his any more. But David remembers what his Grandpa said – “Let’s see what we’ve already got. More often than not, we’ll find the answer inside” – and learns that when you’re happy with yourself, friends will follow.
