Disgusting Critters: The Bat

You’ll like this book if you either want to learn a lot about bats, or you just want to know all about animals. It has all different types of facts, such as where a bat sleeps, how it finds food, and more! This book is really good to read and I would definitely recommend it to you!

Megabat and the Not-Happy Birthday
Read More
Mega Bat is actually a quite small bat but is big in the soul. He may think glasses are face windows, he may say a couple of things wrong, but that is all ok. Mega Bat's birthday is coming up and he doesn’t know what to do! He’s so excited! Will his birthday turn out like he thought? Will it even be fun? Read this epic book to find out!

If you read this book you will love it! I give this book 100 stars. The book makes me want to read more bat facts. I hope that she makes more cool books. I like creepy animals.

This book is awesome. I would definitely read Megabat again. My favorite part is the way Megabat talks. I recommend this book ages 5 to 10. I am still reading this book but it is really good so far. The chapters are short and I like when they are short. I would definitely read another book in this series.
