A Boy Called Bat - Elana K. Arnold, Charles Santoso

Staff Pick

A Boy Called Bat (Walden Pond, $16.99), formally known as Bixby Alexander Tam, is worried. His veterinarian mom is late coming home from work, and any change from his family’s normal schedule bothers Bat. When his mother does arrive, however, she has an explanation and an accompanying surprise: a baby skunk. Although the kit’s presence is another deviation from the norm, Bat quickly bonds with the defenseless animal. In fact, he decides that his mother’s plan to send the skunk to a wildlife refuge ignores that Bat is the absolute best skunk caretaker available. Written by Elana K. Arnold and peppered with evocative drawings by Charles Santoso, this is a sweet story of an unusually beautiful friendship. Ages 9-12.
