Product Details


“When bedtime beckons, it will be impossible to get through this book aloud without summoning yawns—bedtime success is guaranteed.” —Booklist

“Every child who has had a sleepover can relate to this silly tale, which turns the important aspiration of staying up all night into an adventure . . . Hilarious bedtime fun, ideal for sharing—provided the dozes hold off.” —Kirkus

“Amid fun-filled antics in Eliopoulos’s signature style, his use of soothing cool colors plays out against ample white space, cleverly centering exaggerated yawns and bleary eyes that are all too easy to mimic, making for a surprisingly soporofic read.” —Publishers Weekly

The vibrant, dynamic art calls up Winick’s Hilo series, with playful, robust digital figures in cool-toned colors against white background, and the increasingly panicked and then sleepy expressions of the two pals match the book’s action and pace.” —BCCB

“Eliopoulos ably conveys the contagiousness of a yawn—and the contagiousness of kids’ enthusiasm for sleepover fun. The not-sosleepy comic-style digital illustrations and speech-bubble-heavy text add accessibility and appeal.” —Horn Book
