Author Chris Holaves and illustrator John Goomas signed their books Running with the Bats / Corriendo con los murciélagos and Even the Dead Get Up for Milk / Hasta los muertos se levantan por leche at Lake Summerset Art Festival, Davis, IL, on July 17, 2010. The publisher of these two bilingual children's books is Astakos Publishing, Roscoe, IL.

Festival visitors commented that the story and art of Running with the Bats / Corriendo con los murciélagos reminded them of their own adventures with bats in their backyards and houses. Many said Goomas’s pen and ink drawings of bats throughout the book set the mood for the story. Patrons enjoyed Holaves's spooky but humorous “bat” story told in verse and in the “bat facts” in back of the book. Many liked that both books are English and Spanish.

Guests at the festival purchased autographed books for their younger family members.
