The Bat-Poet Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

There was once a little brown bat who couldn't sleep days-he kept waking up and looking at the world. Before long he began to see things differently from the other bats, who from dawn to sunset never opened their eyes. The Bat-Poet is the story of how he tried to make the other bats see the world his way.

Here in The Bat-Poet are the bat's own poems and the bat's own world: the owl who almost eats him; the mockingbird whose irritable genius almost overpowers him; the chipmunk who loves his poems, and the bats who can't make beads or tails of them; the cardinals, blue jays, chickadees, and sparrows who fly in and out of Randall Jarrell's funny, lovable, truthful fable. Best Illustrated Children's Books 1964 (NYT)
Year's Best Juveniles 1964 (NYT)

Synopsis:

This "shining jewel of a book (that) cries to be read aloud . . . (and) speaks to every child" (New York Times Book Review) combines the work of two bestselling children's book talents. "The combination of prose and verse has never been bettered".--Louis Untermeyer.
