It is a tender story of family, friendship, and love but far from schmalzy. A fruit bat is separated from her mother and ends up living with a bird family. There is hilarious humour around the fact that birds and bats are very different creatures indeed! But there are also powerful messages about how to appreciate and value difference in yourself and in others. The illustrations are luminously deep and capture remarkable moments in the story.
Enjoy the story and pictures here, beautifully read by Pamela Reed.
