Book Review - I Dare You Not to Yawn

Yawns are sneaky and can creep up on you when you least expect them. Be careful not to yawn or you will find yourself being sent upstairs to bed... I Dare You Not to Yawn is a hilarious book about a young boy who tries to avoid yawning for fear of having to go to sleep...

Readers are given tips to stop a yawn, such as, not making eye contact with anyone yawning, staying away from huggable stuffed animals and cosy pyjamas and ensuring you do not sing sleepy-time songs.

The brightly coloured, simplistic illustrations are highly effective in complementing the text and adding to the book’s humour. A set of white eyes appear on a black double page spread, with the accompanying text “How did I get here?”, creating one of many laugh-out-loud moments.

I Dare You Not to Yawn is recommended for readers aged 4 and over who will enjoy the hilarity found in familiar subject matter.
