Description
Those bats are back, only this time they're having a holiday on a summer beach—after the sun has gone down, of course. Following Bats at the Ballgame and Bats at the Library, Brian Lies gives us another rollicking, rhyming, bat-family adventure, with moon-tan lotion, snack-tray boat rides, picnic suppers of salted 'skeeters and bug-mallows, and batty songs around the campfire (including "The Bat Hymn," sung to the tune of "The Battle Hymn of the Republic"). Perfect for reading aloud, this lap-sized board book for youngsters up to 7 features Lies's superbly detailed moonlit paintings of friendly, furry-faced bats of all ages.

"The rhyming text, which floats white against the dark backdrops, leaves no beach activity or experience unmentioned, right down to the unpleasant feel of itchy sand 'where no sand should be.' The acrylic paintings are appropriately dark but never muddy, and the gently anthropomorphized bats, every strand of fur sharply delineated, follow in the cute-but-still-batlike tradition of Stellaluna. Readers will be swept right along until the sun comes up and the bats return home: 'We sigh and snuggle close together / to dream about the moony weather'."—Booklist
