“There are fantasy sequences capable of captivating both children and adults, and one of the newest is by Kenneth Oppel. Oppel’s achievement in this book is to have created much more than an action adventure involving bats. In anthropomorphising them, he explores their collective dreams and aspirations, as well as their individual characters. This first powerful novel successfully creates a new fantasy-world, and a convincing simulation of bat life.”
