Book Review


Bat loves animals, especially Thor, his pet skunk; but is it time to return him to the wild? Lots of changes are happening in Bixby Alexander Tam’s (aka Bat’s) life. Between being offered to take care of the classroom rabbit for the summer, his dad’s new girlfriend, working at his mom’s veterinary clinic, and worrying about being separated from Thor—it’s a lot for a kid with autism to take care of. The bond between skunk and boy is not to be underestimated though, as everything finds its place in the end.
