The yawn heard round the world
Scott Thomas
Illustrations by Tatjana Mai-Wyss
30pages - 2003


A little girl who says she is not tired lets out a big yawn that spreads to others around the world before coming back to her house
Here is your ticket to a round-the-world journey with a most unusual tour guide. Departing from Sarah's bedroom, her yawn makes an eastbound tour of the globe through Cuba, France, Chad, Russia, China, the blue Pacific, Peru. . .and beyond. Will it ever stop?!
Bouncy rhymes and watercolor collages enliven each episode in this contagiously funny tale of a silent phenomenon familiar to even the most wide-awake sleepy-head in the world.
