A delightful picture book, created by the bestselling author of Hugless Douglas, about a nursery class' unusual day out.

The nursery class is lined up in twos and ready to go out with Miss Moo Hoo. Little Bat Jack is on his own at the back, but he doesn't mind. As they walk through the woods, they hear, feel and see something rather unusual... what on earth could it possibly be?

'With playful text and a catchy refrain, Little Bat Jack proves that all the best things come in small packages.' - Junior
