Celebrate the Release of Bat and the End of Everything!


For the 2018 Global Read Aloud, thousands of kids around the world fell in love with Bat and his skunk in the incredible book, A Boy Called Bat by Elana K. Arnold.  Imagine my sheer delight when Elana reached out to me to ask if I would mind celebrating the release of the third book in the series with her.  Absolutely!  Then imagine my even bigger delight and surprise when she said she would love to give away three free Skype visits in order to celebrate the book’s release.  So for the month of March, this giveaway will be open to the world.  Please read on to see how to enter.

On March 26, BAT AND THE END OF EVERYTHING will enter the world!


Here is more about the book:

The third book in the funny and joyful series Katherine Applegate has called “tender and
important,” by National Book Award finalist Elana K. Arnold. 

Bixby Alexander Tam (nicknamed Bat) has been the caretaker for Thor, the best skunk kit in the world…but the last day of third grade is quickly approaching, and Thor is almost ready to be released into the wild.

The end of school also means that Bat has to say good-bye to his favorite teacher, and he worries about the summer care of Babycakes, their adorable class pet. Not only that, but his best friend is leaving for a long vacation in Canada.
Summer promises good things, too, like working with his mom at the vet clinic and hanging out with his sister, Janie. But Bat can’t help but feel that everything is coming to an end.

National Book Award finalist Elana K. Arnold returns with the third story starring an
unforgettable boy on the autism spectrum.

Bringing Bat to the page over three books has been a joy. Greater still has been the joy of
connecting with kids who love Bat and Thor, his skunk kit.

To celebrate the publication of BAT AND THE END OF EVERYTHING, I’m giving away
three free Skype visits!
I want to thank everyone who has read the BAT books and shared them with kids, including
Pernille Ripp whose Global Read Aloud helped many more kids meet Bixby Alexander Tam.

Please enter the drawing, tell a friend about the BAT books, and cuddle an animal friend.
With Love,

To enter the drawing, simply enter in your information on this form and stay tuned.  Winners will be drawn on March 26th!
