On a night when the moon can grow no fatter, bats pack their moon-tan lotion, blankets, banjos, and baskets of treats and fly off for some fun where the foamy sea and soft sand meet. 15,000 first printing.
Very cute rhymes in this story. It was fun to relate things we do at the beach with the normal things of bats, such as eating bugs instead of food we enjoy. Illustrations are great too.
