Bats often get a bad rap. For many years they have been associated with Halloween witches, Count Dracula and the like. Few people have good words for bats. Eric doesn't know what to believe when his cousin, with a Dracula-like "Ha, ha, ha," tells him that they are actually going to watch Austin, Texs' famous bats fly out from their colony under the Congress Avenue Bridge. But Eric's curiosity is piqued enough to use his Enchanted Leaf to go and talk to a bat personally. Join Eric and Echo for a night that dispels the myths children often have about bats while still bringing out one important danger.
This book is now "live" on iTunes as an app for i-Phone, i-Touch, i-Pad through Pic Pocket Books.
Eric's uncle told him, "When the bats first started to live under the bridge, people wanted to get rid of them. Now, we're proud to have them. Look, here they come."
