Hilarious illustrated nonfiction about bats perfect for beginning readers. Conversational text and silly illustrations will have you up all night reading about the only flying mammal on Earth!

Fast bat facts:
  • Distinctive trait: The only flying mammal
  • Diet: Insects, fruit and even animal blood
  • Special talent: Sleeping upside down

  • The Bat covers habitat (bats live everywhere except Antarctica!), species (there are over 1,200 kinds of bats), echolocation, hibernation (bats hibernate just like bears!), conservation (don't disturb a sleeping bat!) and much more. Although silly and off-the-wall, The Bat contains factual information that will both amuse and teach at the same time.

Her old design habits drive her to work a little text here and there into her drawings, and she loves to handle the design of her assignments from start to finish. She isinspired by social causes and likes projects that can handle a good dose of eccentricity. View titles by Elise Gravel
