The charismatic gentleman bat takes a night time stroll down cobblestone streets where the town is lively and energetic. Along the way he meets his lady friend. Dancing and merriment fill their evening until the weather takes a turn. But not to worry, when you're called the gentleman bat, you always come prepared. Although this original story takes place in the Victorian era, it has the universal appeal of two friends, or perhaps more than friends, enjoying a walk together. This book is sure to become a favorite book for children and the adults in their lives.
