The librarian left the window open, and the bats have been waiting a long time to get back inside to enjoy the wonders the stacks have to offer.

This is a super pretty book. The author is also the illustrator, and he did a fantastic job at the details of our little winged mammals – even though I think they look a lot more like mice with wings, but what do I know.

The art is beautiful, and the text rhymes! It’s catchy and should hopefully draw the munchkins into the appeal of literature. I mean, if bats are doing it, why shouldn’t they spring up and beg to go to the library.

I liked it, anyways.

As always, here’s a read-a-loud video:
