Description

Hilarious illustrated nonfiction about bats perfect for beginning readers. Conversational text and silly illustrations will have you up all night reading about the only flying mammal on Earth!

Fast bat facts:
  •  Distinctive trait: The only flying mammal
  •  Diet: Insects, fruit and even animal blood
  •  Special talent: Sleeping upside down

The Bat covers habitat (bats live everywhere except Antarctica!), species (there are over 1,200 kinds of bats), echolocation, hibernation (bats hibernate just like bears!), conservation (don't disturb a sleeping bat!) and much more. Although silly and off-the-wall, The Bat contains factual information that will both amuse and teach at the same time.

ELISE GRAVEL is an award-winning author-illustrator from Quebec.

After completing her studies in graphic design, Elise found herself quickly swept up into the glamorous world of illustration.

She is inspired by social causes and likes projects that can handle a good dose of eccentricity.
