About the Author:

Trudee Romanek is a children's book editor and the author of The Technology Book for Girls and Other Advanced Beings. She has also written magazine and textbook articles for kids and adults. She lives in Barrie, Ontario.

From Booklist:

Gr. 3-6. The title sets the bar pretty high, but this book's funny illustrations and lively layout keep it from becoming, well . . . a snoozer. Romanek includes a wide variety of information, covering everything from REM sleep and yawning to sleep cycles, snoring, and dreams. Nothing is explored very deeply, but curious children will find plenty to interest them and answer their questions. A few experimental activities appear in sidebars. There's one obvious misstep: the author suggests that Edison invented the lightbulb after 1910 (it was invented in 1879). But, on the whole, this volume in the Mysterious You series is a fascinating, kid-friendly look at a subject that's much more complicated than it seems. Todd Morning
