What is THE most requested bedtime story by forty three million, eight hundred and ninety thousand, two hundred and twelve baby bats around the world?

That would be The Amazing Adventures of Sam the Bat!

Young Sam, safe with his mother in the free-tail bat colony in the Southern California desert, learns all the stories of his tribe. The most famous is the tale of the lost colony, who flew east to escape a drought and never returned. The story says the lost ones found a new home, under a bridge over a river, but no one knows for certain.

One fateful day, Sam loses his own colony and home, and thus begins an incredible adventure: wee Sam, the baby bat, goes from the desert to the rainforests of South America, to a five-star hotel in London, to the towers of Notre Dame in Paris, to the other side of the world--only to find that sometimes, home is in the first place you should have looked, and sometimes, the stories are true.
"SAM THE BAT is a delightful book that manages at once to teach children about a fascinating and greatly misunderstood species, while holding them under the spell of a touching - and often very funny - story with an appealing hero.  I'm sorry I didn't get to read it to my own children." - Peter S. Beagle, author of The Last Unicorn and Mirror Kingdoms

"SAM's story is a great introduction to the lives of bats around the world, and is a thrilling read. It's a great challenge to imagine life through the eyes of a bat (I've tried), and Allyson Beatrice does so beautifully. Through SAM, Beatrice explores the kindness of strangers, the importance of friends, and the value of family. I would recommend this book to any young person curious about the world and the animals living in it."  - Daniel K. Riskin, Assistant Professor of Biology at the City University of New York, and from Animal Planet's Monsters Inside Me and Discovery Channel's Curiosity.
