Bats at the Library by Brian Lies.
Houghton Mifflin Company: Boston, 2008.

The bats are in store for a treat. Someone left a window open at the library, and the bats use the facilities for a fun-filled night.

The illustrations are fantastic. Great bat and library perspectives. Page after page of entertainment for the bats - photocopying themselves, making shadows with a lamp, playing house in a pop-up book, and experiencing story time. No text would be necessary to enjoy the book, though it flows better with it. Also the text adds the idea of the bats being captured by the stories, to the point of living them. Several stories are portrayed with bats as the characters. It's tremendous fun picking out the familiar books.

I don't know about you, but I love a good library story. This one ranks with the best. Watch for every detail in the pictures!

Also available in Spanish.
