È arrivato il nuovo libro di David Almond!
Strane cose succedono in città. Il PAPÀ si è messo a costruire un paio d’ali, a mangiare mosche e persino a farsi un nido. La zia DOREEN non fa altro che infuriarsi e impastare gnocchi. Il signor POOP sfila per le strade urlando sempre più forte e persino il preside MENTINA ha bizzarri progetti per la testa. E tutto questo sotto gli occhi di LIZZIE, che si prende cura del papà da quando non c’è più la mamma e che sta per scoprire quanto è bello provare a volare…
Che cosa c’è dietro?

Dear David, Well, you got me. After my rapturous reading of My Name is Mina , I came to My Dad's a Birdman with open arms. I fell in love with the jacket and then, I fell in love with the book. The thing about your books, about Mina, about Skellig, and about My Dad's a Birdman, is that they are full of Leggi tutto

A lovely story exploring responses to grief - great at all levels. I finished it and immediately my 6 year old daughter snapped it up - she's enjoying it so far and it's the first long book she's read on her own.
Okay...here I am a month later and I have to say just thinking about this one creeps me out...keep that in mind... Lizzie and her dad live alone together. Dad wants to be a bird. He eats bugs, makes wings, and doesn't do normal adult things at all. Lizzie is the adult in the family but can't cope bec Leggi tutto
Written in the third person, this book tells the story of Lizzie and her Father. Although never explicitly written, it is implied that Lizzie's Mother has died and so Lizzie and her Father are left to cope alone. It seems to me to be a story in which Lizzie and her Father overcome their grief throug Leggi tutto
"My Dad's a Birdman" is a brilliant retelling of the Daedalus and Icarus myth for contemporary times, but it was a little disturbing, especially at the beginning. I love the feeling of being surprised by the strange details of an odd tale. In fact, that kind of surprise is one of the greatest joys o Leggi tutto
واقعیتش اینه که ۳.۵ امتیاز میدم. ساده و صمیمی و عمیق بود و اصراری نداشت که شخصیتشو زورکی قهرمان کنه و نمونهی خوبی از لذت بردن از لحظه رو نشون میداد ولی پرداختش قوی نبود. حس میکردم خیلی عجولانه داره از همه چیز داره عبور میکنه؛ انگار در یک نشست نوشته و تموم شده باشه، بدون ادیت. Leggi tutto
I think one of the things I liked about this book the most was the illustrations - which I think brought it to life. I thought the illustrations themselves reminded me of Quentin Blake books - which themselves reminded me of my childhood so was quite happy that I picked this one line title in choosi Leggi tutto
It's batty. It's barmy. It's wonderfully wacky. A terrific heart-warming story of a family coping with grief, enjoying each other's company and shared experiences. Very Dahl-esque and very good.
I was excited to read this after reading Skellig, and it didn't disappoint. A lovely, fun story with fantastic illustrations.
