Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Donald Liebenson
Janell Cannon's endearing picture book -- a young fruit bat separated from her mother after an owl attack -- takes wing in this animated Scholastic production. Stellaluna lands in a bird's nest, where the mother bird agrees to take the little fruit bat under her wing, "provided she behaves like a good bird should." That means eating bugs (yeech), not hanging upside-down, and sleeping at night (when Stellaluna likes to fly). Birds and fruit bats will discover and learn to appreciate what makes them "so different, and yet so alike." And, since this isn't old-school Disney, mother and daughter are even reunited by program's end. The 3-D animation evokes the lush forest setting, and the music is pleasant (this DVD edition offers a sing-along option). New characters -- an aspiring superhero jumping spider and two toucans with a penchant for makeovers -- provide some comic relief. But the heart of Cannon's story shines through.

    A sweet and heartwarming story!

    This is an incredibly sweet story for young children to watch. A wonderful lesson in teaching children that it's alright to be different from others. A "must have' in your child's collection of movies.
