KIRKUS REVIEW

A not-so-wise owl and his chubby buddy make both mischief and a new friend one night in this tale of “clothes” encounters. Inspired after a run-in with some laundry on a line, Fat Bat and Sweep impersonate a pair of ghosts—convincingly enough to send Emily the cow galloping off in terror. But turnabout, a little later they’re temporarily terrified by the sight of Emily after she hooks a sheet off the same line. Apologies made and accepted, the three go off, wing in hoof in wing, to bother the chickens. A funny tale for newly fledged Easy Reader graduates, with more dialogue than description and illustrated with lots of small cartoon figures in ink-and-wash rural scenes. (Fiction. 7-9)
