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.

“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.”
– School Library Journal
“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.”
