Judith Kerr was born in Berlin, the daughter of a distinguished German writer. She left Germany with her family in 1933 to escape from the Nazis and they arrived in England in 1936, having spent the intervening years in Switzerland and France. She is married to writer Nigel Kneale and they have a daughter who is a designer and a novelist son.Review:
Birdie is the guardian angel, secret friend and conscience of a young boy who loves football. When on duty, Birdie is so often distracted by his own innocent pleasures that small incidents mount up like the sticking plasters on the boy's body, but Birdie swoops to the rescue when the child's obsession with his football leads him into real danger. The artwork is beautiful, achieved with such modest means: pencils, crayons, sepia ink, and finest liquid gold pen line. The image of the guardian angel is one of ethereal solidity: immense hands and feet, skin pale as marble, seraphic smile, long fair hair. In Birdie Halleluyah the words provide a simple framework upon which the story grows through the images. (TES - 30/10/98)
