A charming and informative story about a pipistrelle bat. . . . Offers vivid descriptions of the animal's flight, its navigational skills, and
the hunt for food. -- SCHOOL LIBRARY JOURNAL
Night has fallen, and Bat awakens to find her evening meal. Follow her as she swoops into the shadows, shouting and flying, the echoes of her voice creating a sound picture of the world around her. When morning light creeps into the sky, Bat returns to the roost to feed her baby . . . and to rest until nighttime comes again. Bat loves the night!

Nicola Davies loves to be out under the stars watching bats, and is lucky enough to live in a cottage with pipistrelles in its roof. Nicola Davies is also the author of BIG BLUE WHALE, ONE TINY TURTLE, and WILD ABOUT DOLPHINS.
Sarah Fox-Davies has illustrated many picture books for children, including LITTLE CARIBOU, which she also wrote, and WALK WITH A WOLF by Janni Howker. While painting the illustrations for this book, Sarah Fox-Davies says that a pipistrelle bat flew into her studio—and right onto her desk!
Ages 4-8. Zoologist Davies, author of Big Blue Whale (1997), offers an enticing picture book about animals that blends story with fact. Lyrical text in large print that's suitable for beginning readers follows a mother bat through a typical evening, as she wakes and sweeps out into the inky night, hunts insects, and returns to feed her young at daybreak. Bat facts are printed in smaller typeface, teaching readers about bats' body features, eating habits, echolocation, etc. Lovely, atmospheric watercolor-and-pencil illustrations show surprising detail and succeed in making an oft-maligned animal appear realistically fuzzy and appealing. A small index concludes this attractive, well-written introduction to a bat's world. Gillian Engberg
