A slightly spooky nighttime adventure for beginning readers

Fat Bat and Swoop the owl love to make mischief. When they fly through a clothesline and come out looking like ghosts, they know it’s time for some fun. And Emily is the perfect target for their prank—she’s quite a nice cow, except that she moos too much. But when their plan backfires, Fat Bat and Swoop find out that even very different people can become good friends.

Sweet, silly humor and just the right amount of spookiness make this a perfect chapter book for young readers.
