Going Batty by John Agard
Shona likes most creatures in the world - but for some reason, she's terrified of bats.
So she's a bit concerned when her new teacher announces they're about to begin a bat project.
But that's nothing to how she feels when a colony of the pesky flappers turn up in her own attic! Luckily Miss Bates turns out to be a bat expert and she's soon on the case.
