FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

New children’s book offers a delightful story of enduring friendship, forgiveness and redemption.

Outskirts Press Announces the Release of New Juvenile Fiction — The Kite and the Boy by Tennessee Author Aaron Duffy

[The Kite and the Boy] August 1, 2017 – Denver, CO, and Johnson City, TN – Outskirts Press—the fastest-growing full-service self-publishing and book marketing company—is pleased to announce the release of The Kite and the Boy by Aaron Duffy. Based on Jesus’ gospel, this beautifully illustrated children’s book will resonate with Christians, while its broader themes will appeal to an even wider audience.

In The Kite and the Boy, a boy spends every penny he has to buy a beautiful red kite, and they soon become fast friends. It seems the kite’s dream has come true as, guided by the boy’s hand, it learns to dive, loop and spin. The boy and the kite spend their days in the park, and all is well until the kite sees birds overhead and wants to fly to them. The boy, knowing the kite could get hurt, holds it back, and the kite begins to resent the boy, eventually breaking free to fly high to meet the birds. But it is torn and broken by the strong winds. Because the boy loves the kite so much, he finds it and patches it up. At the end, the kite is battered and scarred, but it flies better than ever, confident in the boy’s unconditional love.

“The story came to me one day when I was hit with how faithful and forgiving God has been to me despite my lack of faithfulness,” says the author. “As I’ve shared the story with various people, I’ve been encouraged that it almost always gets an emotional response. Even those who don’t connect with the God-narrative often see glimpses of their own experience with a forgiving relationship in their own lives.”

Pointing to the value of forgiveness and the beauty of redemption, The Kite and the Boy will touch children of all ages.
