Batula - Marco Cinello Batula is a comic book/picture book about an unhappy fruit bat (Livingston) who becomes a vampire bat superhero (Batula) and saves the day. The illustrations are really cute. There are a couple of pages that made me laugh out loud (like when Livingston, recently turned vampire bat, suddenly finds fruit disgusting). My biggest quibble with the book is the font -- both of my (dyslexic) kids found it hard to read. This book is perfect for 6-9 crowd who are into comics and superheros (sensitive and younger readers may find some pages (such as when Vlad bites Livingston) frightening).
