Merry Myrrh, the Christmas Bat is a picture storybook written by Regan W. H. Macaulay of Toronto, illustrated by Alex Zgud, and published by Guardian Angel Publishing (http://guardianangelpublishing.com/). The book is intended for children ages 4-7.
Myrrh is a young and very merry brown bat named after one of the gifts of the Magi. He experiences the wonders of his first Christmas among the decorations of a farmhouse, as well as the kindness of the family that discovers him in their home!
The author will be available to sign copies of Merry Myrrh, as well as her other picture books, which will also be available for sale, including: Sloth the Lazy Dragon (illustrated by Alex Zgud, published by Guardian Angel Publishing), Tamara Turtle’s Life So Far (illustrated by Javier Duarte, published by Mirror Publishing) and Mixter Twizzle’s Breakfast (just launched in September/October of this year, illustrated by Wei Lu and published by Mirror World Publishing).
“Merry Myrrh, the Christmas Bat is a charming story that features an unlikely Christmas character. Children will enjoy the antics of the adorable bat and all the lovely Christmas scenes throughout the book. The story is well-written with exceptional illustrations. The author also includes a note to readers for how they can help protect bats. Highly recommended for children ages 3-7.” —Sherry Ellis, Children’s Author
“…The story is lovingly illustrated, with gorgeous detail, by Alex Zgud. Readers will feel as if they are looking in the window and seeing the wondrous scene that Myrrh and Sensa see. And like Myrrh, we’ll want to get closer and closer. This adventure could very well be Myrrh’s last one, if not for the kindness of the human farmhouse family…”—Penelope Anne Cole, Children’s Author
