A Boy Called Bat, by Elana K. Arnold
I want this book in as many hands as possible, so I’m going to give you the short version first:
If I could slap a giant heart-eyes emoji on the cover of this book and hand it to everyone, everyone, EVERYONE, I would. I love it.
I love Bat, I love Bat’s family and his classmates and his teacher, I love Bat’s mother’s veterinary practice and Laurence the vet tech, I love Thor and Babycakes. This book is so warm, so cozy, so loving, that halfway through reading, I changed into my pajamas and read the rest of it all snuggled up in bed.
If you haven’t pre-ordered it already, do yourself a favor and do so right now.
