Bat's cherries keep going missing. One by one, they are whisked away by mischievous animal tricksters behind Bat's back. Will the cherries ever be restored to their rightful owner? In the hilarious I Am Bat, super-talent Morag Hood cleverly draws the reader into the story as Bat attempts to track down the guilty cherry thief. Everyone's a suspect - including you!

This eye-poppingly colourful, comic book is an instant winner with children and adults alike. The adorably grumpy Bat is quite irresistible.

About Morag Hood

Morag Hood has a unique voice. Her idiosyncratic, wry humour permeates everything she does, creating books of style and irresistible charm. Colin and Lee, Carrot and Pea was a runner-up in The Macmillan Prize for Illustration, marking a glorious picture book debut, which she followed up with modern masterpieces When Grandad Was a Penguin, I Am Bat and The Steves. Morag spent her childhood writing stories, painting, and dreaming of having a pet duck. Following a degree in Costume Design from Wimbledon College of Art, and an MA in Children's Book Illustration from the Cambridge School of Art, Morag returned to live in her native Edinburgh with her husband. She still likes making stories, printing, cutting and sticking, and freshly sharpened pencils. The pet duck is yet to make an appearance.
