Rocko, the Christmas Bat

Rocko the Christmas Bat is a charming, Christian-themed children's book about a Halloween decoration mistakenly left up for the rest of the holidays. Rocko learns about Thanksgiving and discovers the true, Biblical meaning of Christmas in his desire to help the family celebrate the other holidays in the season.

Rocko is a wonderful, unique way to tell the Christmas story. It also sends an important message to children that God can use them to do wonderful things in His name, no matter what.

Rocko is available to the general public through Amazon, your local bookstore, and direct from the publisher through this website.

"Rocko started off as a Facebook post. Literally.

A good friend had posted that while putting up Christmas decorations, he found a paper bat hanging in the chandelier, leftover from Halloween.

Well, what exactly would a Halloween decoration think about Thanksgiving and Christmas celebrations? A decoration's job is to help celebrate a holiday, and so Rocko naturally wants to help celebrate Thanksgiving and Christmas.

Rocko finds out quickly that Halloween is not as an important holiday as Thanksgiving, where he learns about a mysterious "Holey Ghost" that people prayed to. Rocko hears about a holiday called Christmas that must be still more important.

As Christmas approaches, Rocko is found by two young children in the family, who want to put him on the Christmas tree. When Mom refuses, Rocko is sad, and the children ask their mom why they can't put Rocko on the tree. Mom tells her children about the Christmas story, and as she does, Rocko begins to realize why Christmas is so much more important than either Thanksgiving or Halloween.

Rocko remembers the family praying around the table on Thanksgiving, and asks God to allow him to be a part of the Christmas celebration, if God wants that to happen. After the prayer, Rocko finds himself transformed into an angel--specifically, the angel that is placed on top of the Christmas tree.

There is no other Christmas book in existence that has, as its main character, a Halloween bat decoration which becomes transformed into the Christmas treetop angel ornament; this makes Rocko a special and unique book, and one whose charm and sweetness makes an impact on children and adults alike.

The book is not written or drawn in a dark, gothic "Nightmare-Before-Christmas" style. Rocko takes a different, softer, and more genuine childlike approach to the Halloween-Thanksgiving-Christmas connection. The holidays are seen from the perspective of a character who had never experienced any other holiday but Halloween before being left up to see what happens the rest of the year.

This is absolutely a unique and inspirational book. The transformation of Rocko shows children in a very memorable way that God can transform and change anyone who is willing to be used as God desires. The message of the book is doctrinally sound and crosses denominational lines.

James King, the author, worked with talented young illustrator, Karis Keeley, to create Rocko. This is Karis' initial entry into the world of children's book illustrating, and his artwork captures the emotions of a wonder-filled Rocko as he learns about Thanksgiving and Christmas. "
