Going Batty

Publisher: Barrington Stoke

Review

Shona isn't afraid of much. She quite likes creepy crawlies and can even cope with spiders if they stay in the bath. But one thing really, really scares her - bats!

When she has a close encounter with one of the mouse-headed little monsters, and then discovers that her new class project will be about bats, she struggles to stay calm. Luckily, an enthusiastic teacher and an unexpected find in her attic help Shona to find out the truth about bats, and help her to come to terms with her fears.

A charming and amusing family-centred story about wildlife, the environment and facing your fears. With short chapters, plentiful illustrations and simple vocabulary, the story is accessible and interesting. Good for building confidence in reading and classified as 'dyslexia-friendly'.
