Bats at the Library by Brian Lies

Bats at the Library by Brian Lies - 32 pages

Bats at the Library tells the tale of a flock of bats that visited the local library one night when the window was left open.  The book shows them enjoying things the human patrons do, such as reading and story time, as well as playing games.  At home point, during a story time, there is a two-page spread that depicts bats as the main charters in several classic stories, including Winnie the Pooh, Treasure Island, Red Riding Hood, Aladdin, King Arthur, and more.

The story was okay.  Nothing really thrilled me about it, but it did make good use of onamonapia on the first page.  Also, the graphics were all dark.  While this lends itself well to being set at night, it would not make it an easy book to use for group story times and the images would be hard to see at a distance.
