About the Book

Editorial Reviews

* "Not since Janell Cannon's Stellaluna...have readers been introduced to such a charming young bat learning to navigate his world.... Acrylic and graphite illustrations reveal a dark night and a sweet, cuddly bat with a freckled nose and long pointed ears. Children in groups or one-on-one readings will enjoy hearing about this endearing character's adventure."
