Quotes & Awards

  • “This is the quintessential book about going to the beach complete with overflowing picnic baskets, kite flying, singing around the campfire, and scratchy sand in places where no sand should be. Kids will certainly identify with the exuberant and familiar fun, but what will get them howling is the fact that the characters are bats that are visiting the beach in the moonlight. The rhyming text is grounded in reality with many inventive twists to keep the imagination rolling.”

    " I don't know why, but I've always loved bats! I think they are so cute...which is probably why I liked this book. on a crisp clear evening, bats come from across the town to have a beach outing, they do all the regular beach things...surf, sail, fly kites, have snacks...but with a bit of a twist. I think the image of 'bug-mallows' is going to stay with me for a while! "

    " Such a fun book to read with the play on words and the rhyming. Great illustrations too. "

    " What a fun book! Beautifully -- and darkly -- illustrated. The moon is full and the bats gather up the family to go to the beach. They toast bug-mallows, fly each other as kites, sail in fry boxes they find in the garbage, and generally have a great time. I loved the book and Lenore indulged me with it. "
