Book Description:

I am bat.
I love cherries. They are juicy and red and delicious and...
My cherries! Some of them are missing.
Who took my cherries? Was it YOU?

Join the grumpily adorable Bat as he searches for his missing cherries in this vibrant and hilarious picture book.



This is an okay book, but I was left a bit disappointed.

I adore bats, so I was really excited to see one as the main character of this picture book.

I'll start with the good things first. The art work is really cute. It's full of bright colors and cute fonts. I also really like Bat himself. He has good facial expressions that match well with the text that is alongside it.

But there's... Not really a story arc. It ends really suddenly, and you're not given a lot to go off of. I understand that this is a kid's picture book, but that still doesn't mean there shouldn't be some sort of plot.

So, this was cute, but not really a great story. If you or your kid loves bats like I do, it might be worth it for the cute pictures. But even for a picture book, this is a super quick one that won't take long.

I received a copy in exchange for my honest review.
