Reviewed in the United States on October 27, 2013
Now that he has read this book and its sequel, Sunwing, my son is obsessed with studying bats. This was the perfect book choice for the month of October/Halloween in our homeschool literature unit. It is wonderful for incorporating into a classroom study, because the author's web site has an in-depth novel study a teacher could use daily over the course of a whole month. The author employs every type of literary device - similes, metaphors, personification, foreshadowing, symbolism - so it's an English teacher's dream. The book also could generate good classroom discussions about differences in culture and religion. Although the book is aimed at children ages 8+ I would caution parents that some events and themes in the book could be upsetting to a younger or sensitive child. I think children of about 10 to 12 are the perfect audience for the book.
