BAT LOVES THE NIGHT takes the reader on a bat's journey through a hushed nocturnal world.

As nighttime falls, a pipistrelle bat awakens and swoops into the shadows to find her evening meal. But as morning's light creeps across the sky, the bat returns to her baby in the roost—and waits for night to come again. Gracefully illustrated by Sarah Fox-Davies, Nicola Davies's quiet story is laced with information about these fascinating and mysterious creatures of the night.
