Eyes open or closed, right side up or upside down, animals sleep in many different and surprising ways. Stockdale takes readers on a lighthearted exploration of the animal world's varied sleeping habits. From open-eyed fish in the sea to elephants standing on an African plain to the child and cat curled cozily in bed, this book will delight youngsters as it puts them in the mood for bed. Full color.
