If I Had a Vampire Bat

Gabby Dawnay, Alex Barrow

An unexpectedly charming bedtime story in which a little girl imagines what it would be like to have a vampire bat as her pet. 

Have you ever imagined what it would be like to have a vampire bat for a pet? Besides being less squishable than a spider and far more conveniently sized than a werewolf, vampire bats sleep all day and could scare your neighbors! Haunted houses are fun and all, but picture how much better they would be with a vampire bat in tow!

In this humorous, energetically rhyming tale, a little girl experiences exactly what life would be like with a wild creature for a pet. The latest in the bestselling If I Had A . . . series, If I Had a Vampire Bat celebrates the fun of having a spooky, scary, imaginary pet.
