If you love stories about animals, I highly recommend Aye-Aye Gets Lucky, written by Terri Tatchell and illustrated by Ivan Sulima. This book is about a mischievous aye-aye who loves pulling pranks and spooking the people of Madagascar! His behaviour and creepy claws earn him a bad reputation, and people start believing he’s bad luck! Then one day, a flying fox gives the aye-aye a taste of his own medicine. The aye-aye learns it’s not so fun to feel scared and realizes he must earn back the people’s trust. I enjoyed how this story is told through rhyming verses and is about an endangered animal native to Madagascar. The additional fun facts about the aye-aye and flying fox and drawing tutorials in the back of the book were pretty neat, too!
To learn more about the aye-aye, read on below!
