Official Press Release
Continuing the tradition of Silverline Books all-ages’ graphic novels like DEAR DRACULA, BRUCE THE LITTLE BLUE SPRUCE and MISSING THE BOAT is Vicente Navarette’s take on a favorite pastime, KITE DAY!
“After being so taken with DEAR DRACULA, I was extremely pleased to once again work with Vinny on KITE DAY,” Silverline Books Publisher Jim Valentino said. “KITE DAY is exactly the kind of book Silverline Books looks for: engaging graphic novellas that bridge the gap between comics and traditional all-ages’ books suitable for kids and parents alike.”
Told in a delightful rhyming narrative, KITE DAY is a charming all-ages book that takes the reader on a fanciful journey through the imagination of a spirited, young-at-heart elderly man on his kite flying afternoon.
KITE DAY (DEC082278), a full-color 48-page 8.5 x 5.5 hardcover for $9.99, will be in stores February 4th, 2009.
