My Dad's a Birdman, Paperback

My Dad's a Birdman Paperback

Illustrated by Polly Dunbar



Join a father and daughter as they find their wings together and take to the skies in this funny, tender tale from the master of contemporary storytelling. A warm and wonderfully wacky tale told with heart and hope by the Carnegie award winning author David Almond.

Lizzie and Dad live in a rainy town in the north of England.

It's just the two of them, and Auntie Doreen, who pops round to check Lizzie's spellings and tell Dad he's daft - and make them nice hot dumplings.

But today there's something unusual going on: why is Dad building himself a pair of wings and studying the birds to see how they fly?

The Great Human Bird Competition of course!
