Happy book birthday to MEGABAT AND THE NOT-HAPPY BIRTHDAY by Anna Humphrey and illustrated by Kass Reich, out today from Tundra Books!

It’s Daniel’s birthday, and Megabat wants to join in all the fun, but his excitement gets the best of him and suddenly the birthday celebrations are on the brink of disaster. The next laugh-out-loud book in this sweet and funny chapter book series featuring a talking bat.

Anna Humphrey has worked in marketing for a poetry organization, in communications for the Girl Guides of Canada, as an editor for a webzine, as an intern at a decorating magazine and for the government. None of those was quite right, so she started her own freelance writing and editing business on top of writing for kids and teens. She lives in a big, old brick house in Kitchener, Ontario, with her husband and two kids and no bats. Yet. Anna is represented by Amy Tompkins.

Kass Reich was born in Montreal, Quebec. She works as an artist and educator and has spent the majority of the last decade traveling and living abroad. She is now back in Toronto and is a new mom. Kass loves illustrating picture books, including the award-winning Sergeant Billy, the Canadian bestseller Carson Crosses Canada, Hamsters Holding Hands, Dr. Coo and the Pigeon Protest, and the Megabat series. Kass is represented by Fiona Kenshole.
