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.
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!
My Dad’s a Birdman is published by Walker Books: a warm and wonderfully wacky tale told with heart and hope by Carnegie award winning author David Almond and illustrastor Polly Dunbar.
