Author: Jeffrey Hickey
Title: Bats And Bones
Genre: Middle Grade, Ghost Stories
Synopsis: Bats And Bones is the second work for children from IPPY award winning author, Jeffrey Hickey. This collection of spooky stories is for middle school children and above. It dramatically, poignantly, and at times, comically explores the notion of death within the presence of life. This work is meant to be read whilst listening to the audio book where the author performs all the voices himself, backed by music he composed and recorded.
Review: I found this book really easy to get into and I had it finished within two hours of starting this book. These stories are short and would be good for children who struggle to sit through longer stories or read longer stories. I would read these stories over and over again. I really enjoyed settling down with this book and just could not put it down. This book will be in my collection for many years to come and will be passed down with the rest of my collection when I am no longer on this earthly plain. I will read these stories to my children and grandchildren, etc, etc and hopefully they will do the same for the future generations. This book should be in every book collection for young (and old) children as it is an excellent read that children will love. It is also a good way to teach them about parts of life that they may not understand.
