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.

Polly Dunbar
is the author-illustrator of Dog Blue, Flyaway Katie, and Penguin, and the illustrator of Shoe Baby by Joyce Dunbar and Here's a Little Poem by Jane Yolen and Andrew Fusek Peters. She lives in Brighton, England.
