What is “Megabat” about?

“Daniel Misumi has just moved to a new house. It’s big and old and far away from his friends and his life before. AND it’s haunted… or is it?  Megabat was just napping on a papaya one day when he was stuffed in a box and shipped halfway across the world. Now he’s living in an old house far from home, feeling sorry for himself and accidentally scaring the people who live there.  Daniel realizes it’s not a ghost in his new house. It’s a bat. And he can talk. And he’s actually kind of cute.  Megabat is a funny, sweet story about a lonely boy and a bat, who become friends over their shared love of Darth Vader and jellyrolls.” -Goodreads
