About the Author

Elana K. Arnold is the author of critically acclaimed and award-winning young adult novels (Damsel, What Girls Are Made Of) and children's books (A Boy Called Bat). She lives in Southern California with her family and a menagerie of pets.
Patrick Lawlor is an accomplished audiobook narrator, stage actor, director, and combat choreographer. The recipient of an Earphones Award, he has also been a finalist for the Audie Award.


Patrick Lawlor charmingly narrates this heartwarming story of Bixby Alexander Tam-otherwise known as Bat-an autistic third grader who bonds with an orphan skunk brought home by his mom, a veterinarian. Lawlor skillfully navigates the family dynamics, raising the pitch and speed of Bat's voice to show his frustration when his sister eats the last vanilla yogurt, then slowing to a soothing calm as his mother explains why she's late getting home. Lawlor captures Bat's emotional range perfectly-from his raw enthusiasm at caring for a real animal to the affection he shows in his conversations with the skunk's kit. The more Bat learns about skunk care, the less anxious his voice becomes, showing his maturity in dealing with this new situation.

-- "AudioFile"

Delightful, endearing, and utterly relatable, Bat Tam is destined to be a dear and necessary friend for young readers. I adore him and his story.

-- "Anne Ursu, author of The Real Boy"
