Owl Bat Bat Owl

Written and Illustrated by Marie-Louise Fitzpatrick


I love wordless books. This is a cute book that teaches us that we can all get along despite our differences. The illustrations are expressive and engaging. Would be great for a read aloud discussion.

Review by Vanessa Eyre, Robert Frost Elementary Media Center
Rating: ★★★✩✩ (3 stars)
Interest Level: Grades K-2

“A mother owl and her three little owlets live happily on their branch. That is, until the bat family moves in. The newfound neighbors (owls up top, bats hanging below) can’t help but feel a little wary of one another. But babies are curious little creatures, and that curiosity, along with a wild, stormy night, might just bring these two families together. With subtly and hilariously shifting facial expressions and gestures, Marie-Louise Fitzpatrick brings her accessible graphic style to a warm and ingenious wordless tale that is sure to bring smiles to readers of all ages.”
