    3. 'Megabat' follows Daniel, his uncommon visitor Megabat, and Daniel's friend Talia. Oh! It is a cardinal sin to forget the pigeon Birdgirl. They all try to send Megabat back to his home. Their attempts fail over and over again. In that process, the friends learn what is 'home' to them, the beauty of uncommon friendship, and the power of loving-kindness. It is a delightful read. Also, Megabat talks like Dobby.

    4. Megabat by Anna HumphreyI love reading kids books, although I don't have kids of my own and I'm way too grown up for them. but I still enjoy good children's stories.Megabat is exactly what its called, it's about a Megabat or also known as a Fruitbat he is living all alone in an attic of a house in Canada when the new family moves in with their very unhappy son Daniel who settles in the attic room. At first, Daniel thought the roof was leaking when he soon realizes that all the wet puddles on the [...]

    5. Interesting enough that I kept reading it. Good book for a kid who doesn't really like the magical/fantasy vibe of many kid books. But it has imagination built into it anyway. Great little story about making friends in the weirdest way. Great little companion story to have for any kid who enjoys Star Wars because that's like a sliver of the theme in this book. Does fantastic with believable sibling arguments and wielding information against one another. It was hard for me to read the start of it [...]

    8. A talking fruit bat who like Star Wars. A talking fruit bat who is far from home.

    9. Daniel acaba de mudarse y descubre que hay un murciélago (¡que puede hablar!) viviendo en la que ahora es su habitación, es así como Daniel y su nueva amiga Talia se embarcan en una aventura para que Megabat puede volver a su hogar. Megabat es una lectura que nos enseña el valor de la amistad y que los amigos pueden venir en formas y tamaños inesperados.

    11. I read Megabat with my two kids (6 & 4 ), we all loved it and looked forward to reading it every night. Even Dad loved the book, asking us to only read it at bedtime so he could listen too. It was hard to choose between devouring it all at once or pacing ourselves with a few chapters each night. Megabat is such a charming character, his adorable voice and kind demeanor easily won us over. The story of Megabat and Daniel is sweet as they overcome and accept the changes in each of their lives. [...]

    12. This book grabbed my interest because I love bats. I was not disappointed. The illustrations are absolutely adorable and Megabat is the most lovable little creature I've ever read about. The story is one of unlikely friendships, acceptance of changes, and helping each other. I was pleasantly surprised by how complete the story was. The only reason why I am not giving it 5 stars is that it still needs some polishing work. I'm not sure if it's still to come (since the release date is later this ye [...]

    13. What a lovely and touching story.! Megabat is completely charming and you will fall in love instantly with his personality and way of speaking. What reader cannot identify with the feeling of being lost far from home, friendless, and in need of a kind word?Daniel and Megabat become acquainted through mutual loss and loneliness, but the fabulous moments of levity keep this book from being too heavy for a sensitive younger reader. If you are looking for a feel-good next read, this is it.

    14. A fun story of adventure and friendship between a lonely boy who is new-to-town and his newfound friend, the lonely fruit bat found in the attic of his new home. The storyline is fun, and the themes around different friendships are touching. My children will love this book and I look forward to reading more by this author with them. 5 stars for Megabat.

    15. This was straight-up adorable. Review to come closer to release date!*Thanks to Netgalley for providing me with an ARC in exchange for an honest review*

    16. This was completely adorable! It's made me want a Megabat all of my own, if you have younger children I would definitely recommend you get this book when the time comes as my 7 year old loved this!

    17. Megabat is a cute story about the unlikely friendship between a young boy and a fruit bat who both desperately need a friend.

    18. This is a story to make us think where and what home is. For me is a state of mind and home is where the heart is. That was what the hero of this story realised. Trying to get a bat back its homehe realised that his hime was where he was. Also shows the value of true friendship. I would have loved this story. but i do not like bats. ahahahahah
