About the Author

Kenneth Oppel wrote his first novel at the age of 15, and enterprisingly sent it to his favourite writer, Roald Dahl. Publication soon followed, and since then he has written more than twenty books, for which he has won many prizes in his native Canada. He now lives and works in Toronto with his wife and children.


'SILVERWING is top-notch fantasy adventure writing. Go for it.' -- Daily Telegraph 'cracking stories, brimming with adventure, redolent of great mythical sagas of the past, alive with invention, thoughtful - at times profound and probing - and never faltering when it comes to thrills and page-turning power.' -- Carousel 20021108 'Fast faced, cliff-hanging action ... Recommend this one.' -- School Library Journal 20021108 'Totally compelling ... an excellent adventure story.' -- The Scotsman 20021108 'Oppel's achievement is to have created much more than an action adventure involving bats. This first powerful novel successfully creates a new fantasy world.' -- Literary Review 20021108 'A JONATHAN LIVINGSTONE SEAGULL of the bat community ... this epic journey is gripping, and details of bat life are inventively and convincingly imagined.' -- Publisher's Weekly 20021108 FIREWING: 'The third book in a riveting saga about bats ... capable of enthralling both 9-11s, as well as an older audience.' -- Achuka website 20021001 'A fascinating, gripping adventure story' -- Teen Titles 20030101
