9780060262518: Rufus

Tomi Ungerer’s classic tale about a bat who learns to embrace his differences through friendship.

Like all bats, Rufus sees life in black and white, until he chances upon an outdoor movie theatre and is awakened to the dazzling world of colours for the first time. 

Inspired and excited, Rufus paints his own wings and ventures out into the day, only to discover that his unusual appearance attracts unwelcome attention. 

Though he is initially rejected for his difference, Rufus soon learns to accept himself for who he is, thanks to a new friend. 

Beautifully written and illustrated by the legendary Tomi Ungerer.
