Publisher Description:
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.
