Holy talking bats, Batman!

Silverwing (Silverwing, #1)Silverwing by Kenneth Oppel
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Maybe a stretch to give it 4 stars, but something that's clearly intended as kidlit to hold your attention is pretty special.  I'll offer a comparison that I bet others also have made, to Watership Down. There's a story with pathos, ability to completely forget these aren't people, and a deep dive into a well imagined foreign culture.  The history museum of echoes in the bottom of their roost is a special gem.

The story was just a little too childish for me, but I'm pretty jaded. I read several of these, & they're pretty much all good.
