Description


Kids will be giggling through their own yawns as they enjoy this contagiously adorable bedtime story by the New York Times bestselling illustrator of the Ordinary People Change the World books.

Two best friends have big plans for their sleepover. They aren't going to go to bed at all--they'll stay up playing all night long. But then it happens: The YAWNS show up! And as much as they try to outrun and hide from them, it's no use: The Yawns catch them. Maybe they could keep going anyway, but then a DOZE arrives . . . followed by the dreaded SNORES. Will our heroes escape the SLEEPIES?

Need a funny bedtime book that will stealthily bring on a snooze and still have your child asking to hear it night after night? Look no further than The Yawns Are Coming!

Praise For…


"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
