One of my absolute favorite books in grade school, I highly recommend it to parents looking to entice their child into the world of literature. Mesmerizing and captivating - this book will draw all who read it into the exciting and beautiful world of the Silverwings!

I liked the book Silverwing because of the action, suspense, and fantasy. The book is about a newborn silverwing bat named Shade who was lost from his colony by a storm. Now he will need all the help he can get to make it back to his colony.

Silver Wing is about a bat named Shade who is the runt of the litter. There is one bat that is constantly making fun of Shade because he is so small and is not strong at all. His name is Chinook. All of the other Silver Wing kids look up to Chinook because he is the 'big shot'. There is a constant battle between the 'Birds and the Beasts'. The Birds are all of thee birds in the forest. The Beasts are cats. I really enjoyed reading the Silver Wing and usually I don't like to read much. This book is an easy read and is also very informational about how bats live and there hard ships.

Reading this series is almost enough to make you sprout your own wings and FLY. From beginning to end, all three books in the Silverwing saga are..well, there aren't enough words to describe them. Shade, Goth, Marina, and everyone else are the most amazing and unexpected characters you will ever meet-and their adventures are the most intense you will ever find. For me, obsessed is an understatement. After reading Silverwing, Sunwing, and Firewing, you will not be able to get them out of your mind.

I liked this book so much. I think this book deserves a huge reward. The author did great on comparing bats to humans. He probably did alot of work on researching into bats too. This author was great. I hope he gets around to wrighting alot more great books. What I'm trying to say is that this book was awesome!! Charlie Age 9

She finds this book interesting, and would like to read more in the series. Her favorite thing about this book is the character, Shade. Shade is cute, according to her. Read the series! Boys like it, too.

This was both an educational and enjoyable read. Oppel takes on a mammoth of a project in anthropomorphizing a generally unknown animal like a bat. However, unlike many who fail at the attempt, he succeeds without question. The entire time, Shade always remains a bat in the reader's mind, with the description of the lifestyle, the senses, the landscape, and the overall world. Its strongest suit is in the educational element, which is captivating the reader as well as informing them. There is no question that anyone will have a much clearer understanding of the world of bats after reading this book. The mythology is unique to bats, or at least unique to humans in regards to bats, and that adds an element of credibility, making the bats appear to have their own history separate of humans and other animals. My only gripe would be that sometimes it's a little slow, and I'm wondering why I care so much about a story involving bats. However, the fact that I keep reading is to Oppel's credit as a storyteller. It's a fun read, and I recommend this to children ages 8-13 and adults interested in fantasy and nature. -Lindsey Miller, www.lindseyslibrary.com
