About the Book

A Boy Called Bat

Written by Elana K. Arnold with illustrations by Charles Santoso
From acclaimed author Elana K. Arnold and with illustrations by Charles Santoso, A BOY CALLED BAT is the first book in a funny, heartfelt, and irresistible young middle grade series starring an unforgettable young boy on the autism spectrum.
 
For Bixby Alexander Tam (nicknamed Bat), life tends to be full of surprises --- some of them good, some not so good. Today, though, is a good-surprise day. Bat’s mom, a veterinarian, has brought home a baby skunk, which she needs to take care of until she can hand him over to a wild-animal shelter.
 
But the minute Bat meets the kit, he knows they belong together. And he’s got one month to show his mom that a baby skunk might just make a pretty terrific pet.
 
Audiobook available, narrated by Patrick Lawlor.
