Bats at the Library

[ 0 ] September 23, 2008 |

Bats at the LibraryThis new children’s book written and illustrated by Brian Lies is a funny story about what happens when a group of bats sneak into the library. During their visit, the bats discover books full of adventure, faraway lands, and lovable characters, plus a place to have their shadow puppet show and a cool machine that makes pictures of bats. What kid wouldn’t want to run free at the library after hours? The lyrical prose and Lies’s beautiful “batty” illustrations make this a wonderful visual read for children ages three to eight.

Bats at the Library celebrates how thrilling a visit to the library can be even if you are a bat—just as Brian Lies’s first bat book, Bats at the Beach, celebrated summer-time beach fun.
