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!
