What's Stellaluna About

Publisher Summary

Knocked from her mother’s safe embrace by an attacking owl, Stellaluna lands headfirst in a bird’s nest. This adorable baby fruit bat’s world is literally turned upside down when she is adopted by the occupants of the nest and adapts to their peculiar bird habits. Two pages of notes at the end of the story provide factual information about bats. “Delightful and informative but never didactic; a splendid debut.”—Kirkus Reviews For this anniversary edition, color has been added to the ink drawings and the interior design now allows for more art to be see. Plus there is a code for a downloadable crafts and activity kit, two pages of updated notes about bats, and a special note from the author.

5.0

There’s a reason this read is a popular one! A sweet baby fruit bat is lost after she and her mother were attacked by an owl. Taken in by a bird family, she tried to be the best bird she could be, even though she’d rather be sleeping upside down and didn’t like to eat bugs. When she comes in contact with other bats, she ends up finding her real mother again, but she ends up with two families who love her for who she is.
