"Delightful. This humorous follow-up is even stronger than its
predecessor and will leave readers hoping for a third book
featuring Bat and his family." -- School Library Journal
"A gentle tale of shared similarities rather than differences that divide and a fine read-aloud with a useful but not didactic message of acceptance." -- Kirkus Reviews
A winsome blend of humor and heart, vibrant characters, and laugh-out-loud dialogue. Arnold's narrative also gracefully explores life through the eyes of a boy on the autism spectrum. The ever-lovable Bat is sure to resonate with readers of all ages. -- Booklist Online
