Booklist Review: "After Bats at the Beach (2006) and Bats at the Library (2008), Lies treats his winged friends to a night at the ballpark, and the result is even more affecting. Amid the claw-biting action are jokes aplenty (the vendors sell mothdogs ), but the chief emotion evoked is one of magic: We wing from dark to dazzling bright, / startled by the stunning sight / of colors like we've never seen: / the brown so brown, the green so green. Lies' acrylic hues hide much detail in the shadow; his stanzas have similar subtle power.--Kraus, Daniel Copyright 2010 Booklist"

Publisher's Weekly Review: "Baseball stadiums have an innate magic, never more so than in the hands of Lies, whose latest has the winged creatures gathering for an epic game, complete with "beenuts and Cricket Jack," and an upside down audience. Smooth, unhurried rhymes illuminate a hidden world where bats, like humans, "feel a magic shift,/ and ride the currents of the game/ as time is set adrift." Each gleaming page is thick with detail, from the bats' first arrival ("We wing from dark to dazzling bright,/ startled by the stunning sight") to the final play. Fans of the other baseball bats will certainly enjoy these ones. Ages 3-7. (Sept.) (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved"
