Regular price $100.00 Sale

The Kite is a humorous yet touching story of a journalist's worst nightmare - having to interview a 111-year old curmudgeon in small-town Alberta. Our hero, David, just wants to get his story and hightail it back to Toronto, but winds up chasing the cunning Daddy Sherry all over Shelby. As David tracks down Daddy, however, he begins to understand that Daddy's not just the oldest and most cantankerous man in western Canada - he's also the wisest. Through him, David learns how to find happiness himself.
