About the Author:

When he'¬?s not too sleepy, SCOTT THOMAS likes to juggle balls and clubs and think up adventures to try. A first-time children'¬?s book author, he works for a newspaper and lives with his family in Buffalo, New York.
TATJANA MAI-WYSS lives in New Haven, Connecticut, with her husband, new baby, and crazy cat, Friday. This is her first picturebook.

From Booklist:

K-Gr. 2. Although it's bedtime, Sara insists that she's wide-awake. A huge yawn gives her away--a yawn so powerful it flies across the room and down the hall, then out the window and across the ocean to Paris, and Russia, and even Peru, leaving sleepyheads everywhere. By the time it makes its way back to Sara's house, Sara is fast asleep. Thomas' first children's picture book boasts a quirky, vigorous rhyme: "A lady with three fancy poodles / dug into her plate of noodles, / then plopped into a soggy snooze. (They put it on the morning news)." And Mai-Wyss ably picks up on the fun in energetic collages with plenty of pattern and detail. The cleverness culminates on the final spread; in the right-hand corner is a fold-out flap shaped like a house that opens to a picture of sleeping Sara. This may be a bit raucous just before lights out; pair it with Margaret Wise Brown's Goodnight Moon to calm things down. Stephanie Zvirin
