ISBN: 0-374-38054-6 Language: English Description: One Sunday morning, Fernando Florez's grandpa spreads out a map and asks him to close his eyes and pick a destination at random. By midmorning, Fernando, his parents, grandparents, and sister are in their station wagon and on the road to San Vicente. When they arrive in the center of the little town, they see many people preparing for a kite festival. While the Florez family has no kite to fly, they waste no time joining in for all the fun. Unfortunately, it's Sunday, and the stores are closed. Where to find a kite?

By using their ingenuity--along with found objects-- they successfully manage to put one together. The real surprise is in store at the end of the day, with no less than the mayor of San Vicente on hand to deliver it.
