In an African forest, a mother fruit bat loves her baby, Stellaluna, very much and would never let anything happen to her. But one night, an owl attacks the bats, knocking Stellaluna out of her mother’s safe embrace, and she falls into the forest below. Soon the baby bat ends up in a sparrow’s nest filled with three baby birds named Pip, Flitter and Flap. When the birds grow, they learn to fly. When Stellaluna and the birds are out playing, it gets dark and the birds go home without her because they will not be able to see in the dark. Stellaluna keeps flying, but when Stellaluna’s wings hurt, she stops to rest.
When she does, she hangs by her thumbs. Soon another bat comes to ask why Stellaluna is hanging by her thumbs. Excited about learning how to be a bat, Stellaluna returns to Pip, Flitter, and Flap in order to share her new experiences. They agree to join Stellaluna and the bats at night, but find they are unsuited to flying at night and nearly crash.
