Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


Ages 4 to 8 years. A hilarious full-colour picture book about a timid bat who becomes the navigator for Mildred the witch in a race against the fastest roller-coaster in the world. Belfry Bat, the nicest bat you could ever meet, seems to be frightened of everything. She wants to be brave and try new adventures but never seems able to join in with her friends. All the other bats make fun of her, but she remains Belfry Bat the Scaredy Cat. One day everything changes. Mildred the wild and wonderful witch comes up to her attic looking for a bat. She knows bats are supposed to have great radar and wants one of them to ride on the broomstick with her in a race against Thunder Monster, the scariest roller-coaster in the world. All the other bats are out on adventures, so Belfry gets the job. In the crazily funny race which follows, Belfry nearly faints and is ready to give up - but she doesn't. Striking full-colour illustrations help to make this story about overcoming fears ideal for readers under eight.
