Bat and Rat are two best friends living in the big city. Together these nocturnal pals enjoy their favourite things, like riding the subway, dumpster diving in Chinatown, writing songs, and playing in a band.
One hot summer night, while tasting their favourite flavours of ice cream, like mosquito ripple, they find the inspiration for the perfect new tune—for they realize their favourite favourite is each other.
Written in a gentle, sweet style reminiscent of Arnold Lobel and Patrick McDonnell and with charming illustrations, Bat and Rat captures the tenderness of classic picture books with a hip, modern twist.
