Floyd didn’t mean to get his kite stuck in a tree; but it happened.
And he didn’t mean for his shoe to get stuck when he tried to knock the kite down; but that happened too.
By the end, Floyd chucks the kitchen sink (literally and figuratively) at the kite… to no avail.
There’s a lesson in all this. But Floyd doesn’t seem to get it: which makes the whole saga even funnier. Plus, the unexpected twists (like Floyd throwing a ladder rather than climbing it) make Oliver Jeffers’ silly tale well worth your time.
