Norman Space Bat


Loved it! 😍

If you are looking for an adventure story that will stir the love of reading in your child, then this book is for you!

If you are looking for a story that will stir the love of reading in your child, then Norman Space Bat is for you! This whimsical and humorous adventure story will have the reader sitting on the edge of their seat.


Norman, an average bat, is locked in a cage. The other bats say that they are a part of a mysterious experiment that has stamped a "T" onto their chest. Norman must use his wits to save the other bats, then he must save the universe from the diabolical VIPD.


I believe the author, Jake Evanoff, has weaved together a tale that readers will enjoy. This book is divided into fifteen short chapters, and each chapter is filled with adventure. Also, the author uses mysterious creatures to tell the story, which makes it inclusive and fun. Together, I believe, these things will make it a captivating read for many children.


The illustrations are remarkably interesting and complement the story well. While most people do not like bats, the illustrations of Norman are adorable. The colour scheme is inviting and will encourage young readers, as they follow Norman on his adventures.


While this picture book is 50 pages long, which is longer than most picture books, I believe it is worth the time investment; though, it may appeal to more advanced readers because of its length.


In sum, I would recommend Norman Space Bat to any young reader, it is interesting and funny. Additionally, it is supported by narration that is easy to follow, and illustrations that are beautiful and inviting.
