A breathtaking picture book illustrated by mega-bestseller Loren Long, about a young
bat setting off into the world using only his good sense!


Sense is the song you sing out into the world, and the song the world sings back to
you.  With these words, Chiro’s mother sends him off into the night for the first
time alone. It’s an adventure, but how will he find his way? And how will he find
his way home? As the young bat discovers, navigating the world around him is easy as
long as he uses his good sense.

This beautiful and touching coming-of-age story, with mesmerizing artwork from New
York Times bestselling illustrator Loren Long and lyrical text from Ari Berk,
conveys a heartwarming and universal message: No matter how far away you go, you can
always find your way home.
