Hurry up! Come one - come all! We're off to watch the bats play ball! You think humans are the only ones who enjoy America's national pastime? Grab your bat - the other kind - and your mitt, because it's a whole new ballgame when evening falls and bats come fluttering from the rafters to watch their all-stars compete. Get set to be transported to the right-side-up and upside-down world of bats at play, as imagined and illustrated by best-selling author-illustrator Brian Lies.

MEDIA REVIEWS

"Baseball stadiums have an innate magic, never more so than in the hands of Lies, whose latest has the winged creatures gathering for an epic game, complete with 'beenuts and Cricket Jack, ' and an upside down audience" --Publishers Weekly, starred review

"The visual effect is quite stunning, with some fantastically disorienting upside-down spreads to reflect the fans' hanging position, and much of the language is utterly delicious."--Kirkus Reviews, starred review

"Careful readers will find plenty of inventive details to make this latest outing to the bats' nocturnal world worthwhile." --School Library Journal

"The book truly soars in the dark yet luminescent art. . . . A grand adventure." --School Library Journal

"Fetching . . . [A] wonderful read-aloud." --Newsday

Bats at the Library

"The library-after-dark setting works a magic all its own, taking Lies and his audience to an intensely personal place." --Publishers Weekly, starred review

"[Lies] brings a sure, expressive and transporting hand to this story of a colony of bats paying a nighttime visit to a small-town library." --Kirkus Reviews

"Illustrations teem with bats so charming they will even win over chiroptophobes." --Booklist
