Manufactured in China WKT 10 9 8 7 6 5 4 3 2 1 Another inky evening's here— the air is cool and calm and clear. We've feasted, fluttered, swooped, and soared, and yet ... we're still a little bored. All this sameness leaves us blue and makes us ache for something new. Then word spreads quickly from afar: a window has been left ajar. Can it be true? Oh, can it be? Yes!—Bat Night at the library! The sky is lively as we race together toward our favorite place. Eager

wings beat autumn air— Look, that's it. We're almost there! Then squeezed together, wing to wing, we rocket through the opening. We've waited for this night all year, but this is it! At last ... ... we're here. For most old bats, this isn't new— they've got lots of things to do. They'll flutter off and lose themselves among the books lined up on shelves. Other bats, in munchy moods, will study guides to fancy foods or hang out by a lamp instead to talk about the

we'll dream of things we've read, a universe inside each head. Every evening, one and all will listen for that late-night call: Can it be true? Oh, can it be? Yes!—Bat Night at the library!
