Wonderful pictures! Written in rhyme, the story begins with an open window to adventure!

Brian Lies stories about Bats are truly wonderful. They bring the magic of the night to life through the adventures of a huge colony of bats. Brian's artwork is beautiful and makes the reader feel as though they are in the pages with his characters. Big fan!

Ever wonder what would happen if bats got into the library? Find out in the great picture book. This fun and humorous story will bring smiles to children and adults alike.

Clever! A must-read, especially at Halloween time. Having had a few real bats in the attic over the last few years, one appreciates them a bit more when they are characterized as wanting to get closer to humans in order to read good stories.

I love the references to other books. There are some nice little details too, like the book is upside down for the bats to read. The author has a very good sense of rhyme.

Cute little book about the night the bats invade the local public library. Nice illustrations.

An excellent book by an artist who decided to write a story that he would enjoy illustrating. The pictures are great and the story is written in rhyme, and is fairly short and to the point.
