StoryMakers with Jess Brallier BOOKER THE LIBRARY BAT
On StoryMakers join author Jess Brallier for a chat about the first book his new picture book series, BOOKER THE LIBRARY BAT: THE NEW GUARD. The series features Booker, a book-loving bat who works in a library as a guard to protect books from book-eating bugs. The story is based on a real library, Biblioteca Joanina, in the city of Coimbra, Portugal that welcomes bats to live amongst their bookcases, emerging at dusk to feed on bugs that would otherwise destroy the priceless, leather-bound books housed on their shelves. Learn more about these bats and imagine other animals that might do a good job working in a library.
Kids! Tell us in the comments below which animal you would choose to live in your local library and why!
