Young-Sup, a boy who lives in Soul, Korea, is a boy who loves kite flying. He is a jealous little boy who thinks that his dad gives his older brother, Kee-sup, everything. When the time comes for the annual kite fighting festival, Young-Sup wants more than anything to fight with his kite in the festival to represent his family. The only problem is that the oldest kid is supposed to represent the family. From jealousy to great ideas, The Kite Fighters is a book with suspense and action packed fun.


 


I think that the book, The Kite Fighters was a great book with suspense and action. This is a book that the action isnt as in fighting with swords, but with kites. I love this book because it is the type of book that if you are reading a book in a group, you will be suspicious on what will happen next, and you can have the fun a little at a time. I also like this book because it is a book where if you read the whole book at the same time, you will be begging for more. I think that it is a great book because it resembles the life of how two brothers in the present time now, could live from fights to fun. I think that this is a great book because it never gets dull at all. It keeps going with suspense and action.


 

I would recommend this book to those kids who dont like action as in bloody violence, but action as in fighting, but with kites. I think that those kids who like books that have a scenario that could happen in real life. I think that this is a book for kids who have a couple of challenging words, but not as in they dont understand one thing about the book because of the words. I think that you would like this book if you like suspense as in, what is going to happen next? I really like the book, The Kite Fighters, and I recommend this book to everyone.

This book is about a boy named Young-sup and is brother Kee-sup. Young-sup is better at flying kites than his brother. Kee-sup is 14, and young-sup is only 12. Young-sup thinks that his brothers life is better and that he gets to go everywhere yet he doesnt get to go anywhere when Kee-sup does.                         

 
I think you will like the book because if you like suspense you will love this book but if you like to read books from beginning to end then you will not like the book so if you like to read books from beginning to end then stay away and dont bother to buy the book.                                                                                                       

I think that this book is good for people that like kites and for people that like suspense. I also think that people that like to read books from beginning to end will not like this book because then you wont get all the suspence and youll miss out on the best parts about the book and wont get to think about what will happen next in the book.

This book is a good book because it has a good meaning and makes you want to keep reading.  It shows how two brothers start to better understand each other as they develop a great relationship.  Young-sup has problems that he has to solve, and he comes up with creative ways to solve them.  You wont want to put this book down because there is so much excitement and worry involved.

         Two brothers share an unbreakable bond for kite flying. They have two special abilities, and they are Young sup is a master at kite flying. Kee -sup can make a kite fit for a king. Can they combine their abilities, and do well, even with Young-sup staying in 2nd for his brother, so he can win and represent the family? Or will Young-sup take over?


            I think that people who like a nice, happy ending book, would like this book very much, like I did. It was a very good, happy book, although there were some parts that bored me. Like the part when Kee-sup took SO much time on making both of the kings kite, and his brothers kite.


            I recommend this book if you like brotherly bonds, or books that everything turns out alright for all of the people in it. BUT, if you like books when people pass away, or horror books when people scream. This is a book recommended for people between 3rd and 6th grades.

Set in the late 1400’s in Korea, The Kite Fighters is a story about two brothers, and their love for kites. Young-Sup, the younger of the two is a better kite flyer, but his older brother, Kee-Sup, is more talented at constructing kites. One day while flying a kite, the king passes by, and joins them. The brothers and the king become friends, and after seeing Young-Sup’s skill, asks the brothers to secretly fly for and represent him at the kite fighting competition. During such competitions, kite flyers try to maneuver their kites in such a way that they can cut their opponent’s kites free, or send them to the ground. The team works on perfecting a kite and come up with some clever tricks to help increase their chance of winning—while still abiding to the rules of competition.

But according to tradition, the older brother represents the family and should be the one to fly the kite, but Young-Sup is a better kite flyer. Young-Sup is angry that his brother will fly, but what can he do about it? Will he be able to fly the kite? Or will he have to watch his brother fly it?

The Kite Fighters was a wonderful story! Kite fighting is a unique tradition and an exciting display of skill! A brilliant novel full of friendship, determination, and tradition, The Kite Fighters deserve a 5 out of 5!
