Summary: Kid who has moved finds a sad bat. The bat wants to go home.
Recommend grade level: 2-5
Good:Interesting enough that I kept reading it. Good book for a kid who doesn't really like the magical/fantasy vibe of many kid books. But it has imagination built into it anyway. Great little story about making friends in the weirdest way. Great little companion story to have for any kid who enjoys Star Wars because that's like a sliver of the theme in this book.
Does fantastic with believable sibling arguments and wielding information against one another.
Has bird poop humor for those who love it (and we all probably know a kid who does).
Artwork is adorable which for me is an A++ for me.
Bad:It was hard for me to read the start of it. I had to come back to it several times before I was able to get through it. Gets better toward the middle and until it finally ends.
Recommend?Yes. Dabbles with moving, anxiety over making friends, and finding friends in the end. Dabbles a little with geography which was a surprise.
