“Book-loving bats swoop through an open library window and spend a magical evening reading bat favorites such as Good Night Sun. Readers will recognize childhood classics, and I found myself grinning at every page. The illustrations are breathtaking, and the story is wonderful. Like Lies' Bats at the Beach, this book will delight all ages.”
— Joanne Doggart, Where the Sidewalk Ends, Chatham, MA
