Description

Baby Bat loves his cave home and never wants to leave. While practicing flapping his wings one night, he falls and Pluribus Packrat rescues him. They then explore the deepest, darkest corners of the cave where they meet amazing animals--animals that don't need eyes to see or colors to hide from enemies. Baby Bat learns how important bats are to the cave habitat and how other cave-living critters rely on bats for food. Will Baby Bat finally venture out of the cave to help the other animals?

Reviews

All things nocturnal and furry come alive in this unusual story of a baby bat learning about his surroundings...Fascinating scientific tidbits are made palatable and entertaining. - Foreword Reviews
Facts about bats drive this story about a baby bat who makes friends with a pack rat. The cartoon-style illustrations are as highly anthropomorphized as the text. Four pages at the back provide information about cave life, rock formations, cave habitats, echolocation, and more. - Horn Book Guide
Halfmann reveals factual details about bats through an eventful story line. - School Library Journal
