Summary
Bats at the Beach
Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "K-Gr. 2. The trope of a day at the beach is turned on its head with a family of bats that spend a night there, complete with "moon-tan lotion." Young bats play with "the stuff they find" and bury each other in the sand; older ones sing around the campfire and toast "bug-mallows" (an episode accompanied by a slightly icky image of marshmallows with legs and wings). The rhyming text, which floats white against the dark backdrops, leaves no beach activity or experience unmentioned, right down to the unpleasant feel of itchy sand "where no sand should be." The acrylic paintings are appropriately dark but never muddy, and the gently anthropomorphized bats, every strand of fur sharply delineated, follow in the cute-but-still-batlike tradition of Stellaluna 0 (1993). Readers will be swept right along until the sun comes up and the bats return home: "We sigh and snuggle close together / to dream about the moony weather." --GraceAnne DeCandido Copyright 2006 Booklist"
