We are excited to welcome Brian Lies back to Bank Square Books with his latest fabulous bat book BATS IN THE BAND! Join us to greet Brian on October 11 at 10:30am.
In this musical companion to Lies' bestselling series, the Bats strike up the band, celebrate, and share music. A must-have addition to a child's first rhythmic and rhyming picture book library.
Young music lovers who are batty about books won’t want to miss this special family event for BATS IN THE BAND the latest children’s picture book by award-winning author/illustrator Brian Lies. BATS IN THE BAND published by Houghton Mifflin Harcourt, is the highly anticipated fourth book in Lies’s bestselling bat book series including BATS AT THE BEACH, BATS IN THE LIBRARY and BATS AT THE BALLGAME. As the sun sets in this rhyming read-aloud, the bats flock to a summer theater for a one-of-a kind concert that celebrates the rhythm of the night, and the positive power of music. Brian will arrive via Batwagon —a Nissan Cube wrapped in his illustrations and a hand-crafted sewer pipe organ —that attendees can play. He will read a giant copy of Bats in the Band, show some original artwork and autograph books. Other activities will include a musical petting zoo featuring percussion instruments and a piano mat that children can try out. A portion of the book proceeds will benefit Bat Conservation International, a non-profit organization that teaches people the value of bats.
