Illustrated in full color. Inspired by a description of astronauts asleep aboard the Space Shuttle, Astronauts are Sleeping is a bedtime book that is at once a reverie and a visual tour de force. A bright, eager voice describes three sleeping astronauts whizzing around the earth in a space capsule and asks the thought-provoking question "What do the astronauts see in their dreams?" Magnificent pastels by Allen Garns show planets that are breathtaking, astronauts who are alive, and a galaxy that is lush, deeply textured, and beautiful to look at. And happily, readers do discover what the astronauts are seeing in their dreams: they are seeing their homes on earth and memories of their happy childhoods.
