Summary

Lizzie and Dad live in a rainy town in the north of England. But 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!

Critic reviews

"An extraordinary novel ... enchantingly funny and subversive ... There really is nobody quite like Almond writing in children's or adult fiction today." ( The Times)
"A funny, tender tale from the master of contemporary storytelling." ( Publishing News)
"This beautiful book ... will make children laugh while encouraging them to believe in themselves and others and to tolerate strangeness." ( Publishing News)
