Kenneth Oppel

“We all need electricity, but we should be generating it in the cleanest way possible, to minimize air pollution and carbon dioxide emissions. For many years I wanted to buy green power for my home, but it was never available. The same day I read about Bullfrog Power in The Globe and Mail, I signed up as a client.”


Kenneth Oppel is an award-winning Canadian author of children’s books. Born in 1967 in Port Alberni, a mill town on Vancouver Island, British Columbia, Kenneth spent the bulk of his childhood in Victoria, BC and on the opposite coast, in Halifax, Nova Scotia. His highly successful writing began early with the publication of Colin’s Fantastic Video Adventure in 1985. Kenneth went on to complete a BA in cinema studies and English Literature at the University of Toronto, and wrote his second children’s novel, The Live-Forever Machine, during his final year for a creative writing course. Kenneth’s books include the Silverwing trilogy, which has sold over a million copies around the world, and Airborn, winner of the 2004 Governor General’s Award for children’s literature, and the Michael L. Printz Honor Book award from the American Library Association. His latest book is Skybreaker, the sequel to Airborn.

Kenneth now lives in Toronto with his wife and their three children.
