“This talking fruit bat charms everyone he meets: a young boy named Daniel, a pigeon love interest, and discerning young readers.” —Quill & Quire

“The miscommunications between humans and a fruit bat are ridiculous yet funny, and Reich’s soft illustrations add further, gentle humor. . . . A charming tale.” –Kirkus Reviews

Megabat is a fast-paced novel that will have young readers wanting more. . . . [A] highly engaging read with hilarious capers, engaging characters, and gorgeous illustrations. . . . Recommended.” –CM Magazine 

“ A warm tale . . . augmented by amusing graphite illustrations from [Kass] Reich.” —Publishers Weekly

“[Kass] Reich’s expressive black-and-white illustrations are filled with detail and texture, especially with Megabat’s delightful facial expressions, and help guide the story along. Great for readers who enjoy Kate DiCamillo’s Mercy Watson books.” —Booklist

“Megabat is a delightful story . . .  A must for any school or public library, especially as a read-aloud.” —Resource Links

“This is the cutest story I’ve ever read. A great book for an early reader.” —Story Monsters Ink

“When boy and bat get together, they come to understand one another and join forces against a common enemy in this lively story of Birdgirl, Megabat, Daniel, and their community.” Midwest Book Review
