Grade 3-6-Although this volume is filled with cartoon illustrations, the text is well written and full of factual information, covering topics such as REM sleep, nightmares, sleepwalking, dreams, hibernation, and sleep disorders. The text is loosely organized by topic (stages of sleep, tossing and turning, etc.). The writing style is breezy and conversational, but focused enough to be complete and accurate. Page backgrounds vary in washed-out primary colors with plenty of illustrations of snoozing people in pajamas and animals in nightcaps.Christine A. Moesch, Buffalo & Erie County Public Library, NY

Each page of the book discusses an aspect of sleep (e.g., yawning and dreams) of topical interest, illustrates the concept with a cartoon, and has a box of short text that addresses the topic. This is a captivating and informative presentation. The book is filled with interesting facts such as details of animals’ sleep; the loudest snore; the longest period of wakefulness; and the sleep habits of some famous people - Einstein, Churchill, and Edison.
