We can't wait to have a special storytime event with Brian Lies, author of Gator Dad! We in Bat City are big fans of Bats in the Library and the other Bats books, so we can't wait for this awesome storytime. Come join us!


From seemingly mundane tasks such as grocery shopping to more active pursuits like a romp at the park and fort-building, a loving and playful father alligator shows his gator kids that the simplest pleasures done together can make for an incredibly fun day. Presented by "New York Times" bestselling author Brian Lies ("Bats at the Beach"), this heartwarming story demonstrates a series of very special ways children can connect with their fathers and should appeal to parents and little readers everywhere."


Brian Lies was born in Princeton, NJ, and graduated from Brown University in 1985 with a degree in British and American Literature.  He attended the School of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston for two and a half years, and then created Op/Ed page illustrations for numerous publications, including the Boston GlobeChicago Tribune and Christian Science Monitor.  He illustrated his first children’s book for Houghton Mifflin Company in 1989, and has since illustrated more than two dozen others, such as his New York Times bestselling bat series (Bats at the Beach, Bats at Library, Bats at the Ballgame  and Bats in the Band).  Brian’s work has garnered numerous awards, and can be found in galleries around the country.  He spends part of his time visiting elementary schools to talk about writing and illustrating stories.  He and his wife, Laurel, live in Duxbury, MA with their daughter and two cats.
