Attack of the Paper Batsby Michael Dahl, Martin Blanco (Illustrator)
A weird book left on an empty street flips its pages in the wind. The breeze vanishes, but the pages keep moving. They take on a horrible, and hungry, life of their own. Only the Librarian can prevent a young boy falling prey to the razor attack of the bats. Only the Librarian knows the one thing that could possibly defeat them.
