Synopsis

What do you do when you're in bed and the lights are out but you still can't sleep? One boy finds plenty to keep him busy. First, he reads a little-under the covers with a flashlight, of course. Then, he sneaks into the kitchen for a piece of chocolate cake. Later, he listens to the rain and watches the nighttime shadows. What do you do when you're awake when you should be asleep? Maybe you could be reading this book!

Amazon.com Review
The childhood ritual of being put to bed has been a source of inspiration for children (and frustration for grownups) throughout the ages. Prolific children's poet Jack Prelutsky has taken this undeniable truism and run with it in My Parents Think I'm Sleeping, an eye-opening, poetic romp through the multitude of adventures that can take place after the lights have been turned out. From pleasant nighttime thoughts ("I have been in bed for hours, / but I'm sure I'm wide-awake, / for my head is filled with visions / of a forest by a lake.") to philosophical ponderings ("What happens to the colors / when night replaces day? / What turns the wrens to ravens, / the trees to shades of gray?"), children everywhere will relate to these soothing, sleepy poems. Illustrated by Yossi Abolafia with the foggy blues and grays of the gloaming, kids will love snuggling up with this book--in fact, it just might make tuck-in time a dream! (Ages 4 to 8)
