My goodness Bobbie is thoughtless! But I guess that’s what happens when you let all the blood rush to your head and carry weapons of mouse destruction in your pockets, as well.
Depending on the country of residence, the mouse can sue the bat and legally take everything from his pockets. So danger no more!
Agreed. Being thoughtful would make the troubles of both parties go away!
Whether the first sentence probably has a deeper meaning? Can it be that it is meant as a critique of the selfishness of man? What do you think?
Oh, absolutely! I don’t think it is about bats !
So sad. Yesterday my dog dug up a little mouse and by the time I got there she was gagging it up and the poor little thing was still alive, gasping with it’s tiny mouth for air. It died in my hand. Bad dog.
Oh, that is sad! Poor mouse – thoughtless dog.
I guess Nala just didn’t like the taste of mouse.
Or maybe the mouse bit him or something – a final act of revenge!
I thought of that too!
Fantastic imagery in the prose as well as the illustration.
It is a fun alternative to worrying that a bat will suck your blood – he can kill you with the junk in his pockets!
It’s a fun twist. Very clever. Makes one think, doesn’t it?
