From the Back Cover:

If you were a bat... you could stay up all night. You could hang by your thumbs, or hang upside down by your toenails.

You're not a bat, but you can read about them in Laurence Pringle's fascinating look at earth's only flying mammals. Learn how bats can pluck insects from the air, and even fish from the water. Discover how bats help giant trees and other tropical plants to reproduce, and gobble up pesky mosquitoes. Find out, too, how you can help to protect bats and their homes.

Dozens of bats swoop through Meryl Henderson's striking illustrations. The colorful art and clear, concise text together demonstrate that bats may be strange, but that they are wonderful too, and well worth saving.
