Bat vs Poss Book Review
Written by Alexa Moses and illustrated by Anil Tortop
Recommended for: ages 3-6 years
Meek the possum and her three younger sisters live in the sprawling paperbark tree, alongside terrace houses, with a number of beautiful Australian birds, lizards and other creatures. Suddenly Squabbles the bat barges in abruptly and expects all the other animals to move out!
Squabbles is so loud, messy and rude, all the other animals cannot stand to live in the same tree as Squabbles. A neighbourhood meeting is called, where Meek hatches a terrific plan to get rid of this rude bat….but...is it possible for all of the creatures, including Squabbles, to live in harmony in their paperbark tree?
