    Hi there! Our 2nd grade library class was wondering what kind of books you enjoy reading when you are not writing books? We are enjoying the book and watching your videos!

    Hi! This is from Mrs. Rossberg’s second grade class in Oceanside, New York.
    We are loving your book A boy Called Bat! We even got a small pretend skunk in our classroom that we get to pet!
    Our questions are:
    1. Why is it so difficult for Bat to get along and collaborate with others?
    2. We also are wondering what made you want to become an author?
    Looking forward to hearing your answers!

    Hi. Last time I looked there was a link to a page where you could post student questions for Elana Arnold. I can’t find it now. Can we post them here instead?

    Hi there! My grade 3’s and 4’s from St. Augustine Fine Arts School in Calgary, Alberta, Canada have the following questions:
    1. What would the book be like if it was named “Skunk”?
    2. What inspired you to write this book?

    I have been an author for a long time. Bat, the fundamental character in this book, is the most sensible portrayal of a youngster on the Autism range that I have perused. The sublime thing to me, nonetheless, is that it doesn’t feel like an address or a how-not-to, but rather just sweetly recounts the narrative of a kid, his family, his instructor, and a most far-fetched pet.

    Magnificent story, genuine characters…a must have for each library.
