A slightly spooky nighttime adventure for beginning readers
Fat Bat and Swoop the owl love to make mischief. When they fly through a clothesline and come out looking like ghosts, they know it’s time for some fun. And Emily is the perfect target for their prank—she’s quite a nice cow, except that she moos too much. But when their plan backfires, Fat Bat and Swoop find out that even very different people can become good friends.
Sweet, silly humor and just the right amount of spookiness make this a perfect chapter book for young readers.

Swoop was an owl."Hello, Fat Bat," greeted Swoop. "Finished snacking yet?""Never," answered Fat Bat. "Why do you ask?""I am thinking that we could cause a little mischief tonight," offered the owl. "Stir up a little excitement. Bring some life to the dead of night.""Is that wise?" asked Fat Bat."Of course it is," said Swoop. "I am an owl, remember?"Fat Bat thought about this. "Then let's go," he said.Fat Bat and Swoop flew off together into the night.Copyright © 2005 by Leo Landry
