From the Publisher
Just try to resist this comical - and infectious -
cautionary fable that will have even bedtime-avoiders gladly
snuggling up for a nightly challenge.
A yawn can land you in your pj's and under the covers before you
can blink and say "Baa baa black sheep." So clamp your mouth shut
and look away from your sleepy dog, stay away from your cuddly
blanket, and whatever you do, don't think of baby orangutans
stretching their long arms out for a snuggly hug. Otherwise, you
might find your mouth opening wide and letting out a great big
yawny yaaaaaawn - hey, you were supposed hold it in! A hilarious
read-aloud that is so much fun, kids will beg for it again and
again, whatever the consequences.
About the Author
Hélène Boudreau is the author of twelve books for
children and young adults, including the novels Acadian
Star and Real Mermaids Don't Wear Toe Rings as well
as a popular Canadian chapter book series called Red Dune
Adventures. She lives in Ontario.
Serge Bloch's first children's book, I Can't
Wait by Davide Cali, is an IBBY award winner and has sold more
than 100,000 copies worldwide. His other credits include The
Enemy, also written by Davide Cali, and several books he has
written himself: Butterflies in My Stomach, You Are
What You Eat, and Reach for the Stars. He divides his
time between New York and Paris.
Boudreau's pacing is impeccable; Bloch's stylish digitally colored
ink illustrations amplify the text's humor while helping to
telegraph its thinly disguised subliminal message. ... Stop
haranguing noncompliant children at bedtime; I Dare You Not to
Yawn will put them right where you want them…though be
prepared to fall under its spell, too. Resistance is futile.
