Publisher Comments:

Hurry up!  Come one—come all!  

Were off to watch the bats play ball!

Youll never forget your first game: the green so green, the presence of heroes past, and togetherness with family and friends, rooting for the home team.

But you think humans are the only ones who enjoy Americas national pastime? Grab your bat—the other kind—and your mitt, and join these captivating bats as they flutter off to watch their all-stars compete. How about a mothdog?  Or some Cricket Jack?

In sweeping compositions that transport fans to the rightside-up and upside-down world of bats at play, Brian Lies treats us to a whole new ballgame.

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.)" Publishers Weekly (Copyright PWyxz LLC)

Synopsis:

Lies delivers a love letter to America's favorite national pastime and a sporty companion to his "New York Times"-bestselling bat books, including "Bats at the Beach" and "Bats at the Library." Full color.

Gold Gato, April 12, 2014 (view all comments by Gold Gato)
Although I collect illustrated children's books, this is the first "Bats At" book I purchased. Intrigued by the artwork and the simple concept of bats playing the American pastime, I did enjoy the obvious devotion to the concept. The pictures are fun, especially when grandpa bat starts reminiscing about the great bat players. Yes, there is a Lou Gehrig bat standing at the microphone, ala Gary Cooper. Cute. Most importantly, for every book purchased, a portion of the proceeds goes to Bat Conservation International.
