About the Author

David Almond, whose many awards include a Carnegie Medal and a Michael L. Printz Award, is known worldwide as the author of Skellig, Kit's Wilderness, Heaven Eyes, The Fire Eaters, and many other books and plays. Of My Dad's a Birdman, his first novel for younger readers, he says, Birds have always been a big influence. It's something to do with the urge to transcend our earthbound state, to sing, to be free. There is darkness in the story, of course, but I think I found a way to make a joyful piece about grieving, about how love can help us overcome pain, and about how the imagination can work profound changes. He lives in Northumberland, England.
