Silverwing by Kenneth Oppel

In Silverwing by Kenneth Oppel, there is a problem.  Shade, the main character looked at the sun, which you're not supposed to do.  There was a big war because the bats looked at the sun long ago.  Because Shade looked at the sun, the owls burned the silverwing roost down.  When they started to migrate, Shade got lost in a storm and met a brightwing named Marina.  They went to find the silverwings but met two huge bats named Goth and Throbb.  Goth and Throbb then turned on Shade and Marina.  Will Shade and Marina win or will Goth and Throbb have a good snack?

I think that Silverwing was a good book and my teacher read it to my class.  It had very sad parts and parts that kept you on the edge of your seat.  If you like adventure books or bats, then this is the book for you.  The book has many cliffhangers and it is very exciting.  It kind or reminds me of when I was a kid and I read Magic Tree House books. They have really good cliffhangers as well.  If you read this book then you will want to read every single book in the series.

In Silverwing by Kenneth Oppel, the problem is Shade went to see the sun and you're not supposed to because the bats did not fight in the battle of the birds and the beasts and the owls caught him.  He tried to get away and his mom came and rescued him.  He made the owls come and they burned down his roost.  

I like this book because it is about bats and I love bats.  We are reading this book right now in our classroom and everyone likes it.  It is a really good book. I recommend this book. Also there is a sequel called Firewing.
