From Our Editors

Bats have been feared, maligned, and even killed to the point that many species are in danger of becoming extinct. But now efforts are being made to educate people about these fascinating little flying mammals, and fact is overtaking myth. This lively book explains all the bat basics--where they live, how mothers raise their pups, and how they hunt for food.
