Defying Mama Bat’s orders, Bailey sneaks out of their hollow tree to follow a mournful cry coming from somewhere deep in the forest.

The sun is up and it's time for bed, but Bailey the Bat just can't sleep! Bailey discovers a young bull moose tangled up in an old fence. On one side of the fence, hunters roam. On the other side, a wolf pack is hunting. Both parties are looking for an easy dinner. Can a tiny brown bat save a big tangled moose?

A debut picture book from award-winning radio host and journalist Grant Lawrence, Bailey the Bat and the Tangled Moose is a suspenseful story and the perfect adventure for children moving towards early chapter books. Fully illustrated and longer than a standard picture book, this is an excellent choice for newly emergent readers.

“Beautifully written, suspenseful…An ideal shared read with younger students, one which provides opportunities to discuss themes, while also being an independent read for more advanced young readers.”
– CM: Canadian Review of Materials
“Kind, brave, and resourceful...A satisfying adventure with a hint of more to come. Hooray for Bailey.”
– Kirkus Reviews
“Perfect for readers on the cusp of enjoying graphic novels. This will find a home with adventure-loving independent readers who like a little science with their stories.”
