I Dare You Not to Yawn


Quick! Close your mouth!


Especially if your eyes feel droopy, your shoulders feel sloopy, and your mouth feels like it wants to stretch open wide to let out a great big yawny yaaaaaawn — hey, you were supposed hold it in! Oh, dear. You know what happens next, don’t you?


(You were warned. You can’t say you weren’t warned!)


A hilarious—and infectious—cautionary fable that is so much fun, readers will beg for it again and again, whatever the consequences!




“Boudreau’s pacing is impeccable... 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.”—The Horn Book


“Boudreau and Bloch work seamlessly here to deliver the funny.”-Booklist


“Boudreau dispenses mock advice for children who want to avoid bedtime with a sly dose of comedy.”-Publishers Weekly
