Incidentally, a rich old man named Old Chan organizes a kite competition each year in his town but Eddie Wing cannot join because he doesn't own a kite.
This year, Old Chan's competition has a different rule...will Eddie Wing be able to join in the competition this time?
I like the storybook because:
a) A child learns that despite being poor and despite facing a lot of challenges in life, he can still win at something,
b) Old Chan is a wise old man who "gives back to the community" in a creative and generous way, which also helps to promote children's activities and Chinese culture
c) Lastly, Al van Mil's colourful illustrations are really, really beautiful.
