"Sense is the song you sing out into the world, and the song the world sings back to you."
With these words, Chiro's mother sends him off into the night for the first time alone. It's an adventure, but how will he know where he's going? And how will he find his way home? As the young bat discovers, navigating the world around him is easy as long as he uses his good sense, a delightful way to describe echolocation.
In the cone of light that appears in front of Chiro when he sends out his song, scary, ambiguous objects reveal themselves to be trees, geese, and telephone wires. The farther away he flies, the louder he sings and the more confidence he gains, until morning reminds him that it's time to go back home again.
This beautiful and touching coming-of-age story conveys a heartwarming and universal message: no matter how far away you go, you can always find your way home.
