“Someone heard my chants of 'MORE BATS! MORE BATS!' Lies brings back his nocturnal charmers, this time for a rollicking trip to a baseball game. Grab a mothdog and some Cricket Jack and settle in for a wonderful time.”
-- Melissa Posten, Pudd'nhead Books, Webster Groves, MO


Hurry up Come one come all
We re off to watch the bats play ball

You ll 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 America's 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.
