Although the landowner for whom his father works as a gamekeeper hates all birds of prey, Taylor and his friend raise an endangered red kite in secret.

Many people enjoy wildlife through binoculars. Yet, in Kite young readers can enjoy wildlife through a book, as they watch a young Kite grow. A Kite is a real bird, they existed around the 1800's. However near the 1900's their population started to decline. They are now on the endangered species list. Kite, written by Melvin Burgess, was a fast paced book if young readers like adventures. I myself loved the details used by the author and the many twists and turns. I give it a complete five out of five for it's courageous story.Was this review helpful?
