Interview with Mike Unwin, author of Migration

What inspired you to write a children’s book about animal migration?

I have lived in both England and southern Africa, and it has never ceased to amaze me how I see the same birds - such as swallows, willow warblers and common sandpipers - in both places. Their journeys from one continent to another twice a year are mind-boggling. They also seem to offer a lesson to us humans: that some things are bigger than borders and barriers.
