Is it a bird? Is it a plane? No… It’s a bat in a funny costume.

Pat the bat wants to stand out from the other bats and sees the only way he can do so is to become… SUPERBAT! With his (not so super) sewing skills, he makes his own superhero cape and mask and sets off ready to take the world by storm.

However, Pat soon realises it’s a lot harder to be a superhero – all the other bats have super hearing, all of them can fly, and all bats can find their way in the dark. Pat is starting to think that he will never stand out, until a family of mice see him for what he really is: a Superbat!

A brilliant and heartwarming picture book debut from Matt Carr, Superbat has so much charm, with striking graphic illustrations that pop from the pages. It’s a wonderful story about self-belief, with additional fascinating facts about bats, making it great book to read together.
