Imagine you were a Pipistrelle Bat living in the ROM’s bat cave and one night, when all the lights went out, you snuck out of the cave to explore the wonderful galleries of the Museum. What would you want to see? Where would you go first?

Need a little help boosting your imagination? Check out the ROM’s very first children’s book – Burton and Isabelle Pipistrelle: Out of the Bat Cave.

Written by Denise Dias, senior writer with the ROM Governors, and illustrated by ROM senior designer Tara Winterhalt, this imaginative book is about the nocturnal adventure of a small pipistrelle bat named Burton and his sister, Isabelle.

On your next visit to the Museum, take the book with you and trace Burton’s adventure through the Museum, and then take the experience home and re-live it over and over!

Meet the author and illustrator every Saturday in October at the ROM Museum Store.

Coming soon we’ll ask you where you think Burton should go next, so get your imaginations ready!
