‘Dancers in the Sky’ is the first published book of a young author from Bledlow Ridge, Anna Kate Fischer. Only 10 when she wrote it, the book is told from the perspective of one of the famous red kites, which were reintroduced into the Chilterns in the 1980s and 90s.
Soar over the Chiltern skies with Kitty Milvus, a young red kite. Kitty and her best friend Azalea have started training for the Annual Airshow, a competition which tests a kite’s agility, speed, nerve and airborne skill. Both girls have been dreaming of victory their entire lives. However, on the day of the finals, Kitty’s plans are dashed, and she has to make a choice: save her sister or her victory. However, the choice is not as easy as it seems. There is a very high chance her sister is dead, and red kites do not have the same connection with their siblings as humans do.
