Today, I finished reading a book at school called Firewing. It is a great book. It should be rated five star and I will tell you why.
A newborn bat named Griffin thinks of a bad idea that could put him and his whole family in danger. One day, he is playing with his friends, and they are all thinking about what they should do. All of a sudden, a lightbulb turns on in Griffin’s head. He tells everyone about his great idea. Griffin tells them that they should steal some fire. His friend Luna says that it’s a great idea. Everybody votes for Griffin to go because it was his idea. Griffin sees some humans sitting around a campfire so he flies down to the place to where the campfire is and rips a stalk of grass out of the ground. He sticks it in the fire. Then, as he is flying back to his friends, the flame gets too hot and he drops it on Luna’s fur. Luna tumbles to the ground. Griffin calls for help and a few mothers from the roost come. Griffin tells them what happened. Griffin wants to get away from everyone because they are all disappointed in him. Suddenly, he gets caught in an earthquake and is swept underground. He finds out that the place he is in is called the underworld. The underworld is a very dangerous place for a bat like him because there are stronger bats out there. These bats are called the Vampyrum Spectrum. They will do anything to eat him and get their lives back. Will Griffin ever escape from the underworld? Find out in Firewing!
