Bats Out the WindowPaperback - 2001
Sam and Simon are saved from the most boring summer ever when a movie crew comes to town!
Sam and Simon, intrepid heroes and charter members of The Bat Club (Bats and Burglars, 2000), are back with another hilarious adventure. This time Sam's street becomes a location for a movie shoot, and when the boys find out that their favorite kid actor is the star, they are hopping with excitement. Sam and Simon manage not only to meet the star and take him home for lunch, but get themselves cast as extras!
But the boys soon find that being part of a movie isn't all that it's cracked up to be. There's waiting, waiting and more waiting, and soon Sam and Simon wish they hadn't been so eager to worm their way onto the set. Fortunately the boys have a talent for attracting trouble. Before they know it, they're in the middle of a real-life drama...and they have to pull off the stunt of their lives.
A fast-paced and fun story for young readers ready for chapter books, Bats Out of the Window is a great stand-alone adventure as well as a worthy successor to Bats and Burglars.
