Synopsis

Bat and Rat by Patrick Jennings

The urban Frog and Toad, Bat and Rat are two best friends in the city. Together, these nocturnal pals play in a jazz band and enjoy their favourite things: like dumpster diving in Chinatown (Rat is a rat, after all...). One hot summer night, they have a little adventure while going out for an ice cream cone and come up with the inspiration for the perfect new tune that is a testament to their friendship. Written in a gentle, sweet style reminiscent of Arnold Lobel and Patrick McDonnell Bat and Rat captures the tenderness of classic while giving them a modern twist.
