A Batty Beach Trip

'Bats at the Beach'

Brian Lies imagines a different kind of trip to the beach in his picture book, Bats at the Beach: Instead of sunlight-enhanced activity, the coastal scene here is a nocturnal one. The required skincare involves moon-tan lotion; the snacks are "bugmallows," and the company is batty.

Along the way, there's a message for kids: Bats aren't so bad, after all. Lies, an illustrator and author based in seaside Massachusetts, is donating a portion of all the proceeds from Bats at the Beach to Bat Conservation International.
