"The look on our faces is easy to read: " "a little night music is just what we need!" A late-spring night sky fills with bats flocking to a theater, already echoing and booming with delightful sounds of music. Bat music--plunky banjoes, bat-a-tat drums, improvised instruments, country ballads, and the sweet cries of a bat with the blues. Join this one-of-a-kind music festival as the bats celebrate the rhythm of the night, and the positive power of music. Brian Lies's newest celebration of bats and their dazzling, dizzying world will lift everyone's spirits with joyous noise and cheer!
Published Reviews
Publisher's Weekly Review: "Given how important echolocation is to bats, it should come as no surprise that they're secret music-lovers. That's the case with Lies's colony, anyway, back in a fourth book. When night falls, the bats head to a summer theater where act after act takes the stage-there's a string section that hangs upside down while playing, as well as singers in a variety of genres ("Next up, there's a country song-/ some lonesome bat done someone wrong"). Humorous touches abound in Lies's characteristically polished acrylic paintings, and the bats' infectiously joyful music-making will have readers reaching for the nearest noisemaker or instrument.
