Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal

Gr 1-3 - This clever science reader addresses an important topic. Peter comes to the conclusion that sleep is a waste of time and convinces his parents to allow him to stay up (since it's summer vacation) for three nights. Even after just one night, or part of one, Peter begins to suspect the need for sleep may be more important than he realizes. By the third night, he is not the only family member suffering. Sidebars in small type present information about sleep. Children may skip right over this factual material and stick to the storyline. The characters are likable and easy for youngsters to identify with. Peter has a pet hamster, plays baseball, and loves sci-fi movies. This is a fun adventure for independent readers.-Anne L. Tormohlen, Deerfield Elementary School, Lawrence, KS
