Summary

Why do we sleep? Do animals dream? Where is the oldest bed in the world? In this compendium of 5-minute really true stories, you will travel to Ancient Egypt to explore the five beds of Tutankhamun, jet off into space to discover how astronauts get ready for bed and plunge underwater to learn how hibernating turtles breathe through their bottoms. With up-to-the-minute, expert information that is beautifully read by British actress Joanna Lumley, this audiobook is the ultimate brainy bedtime companion for young children.

“Nonfiction lovers will enjoy these short and intriguing pieces about the night: the starry skies, record-breaking beds, space travel, nocturnal jobs and animals.” - The Times

“I could not think of a better way to make a small personal contribution in these difficult times than by making these beautiful stories about the magical world available for younger people to listen to as they fall asleep. After recording all 30 stories, I came away with a spring in my step, feeling a little younger and a little wiser for it.” - Jonanna Lumley, BookBrunch

“What better way to induce drowsiness in young pillow plumpers than short, fascinating introductions to the bedding-down behavior of creatures?" - Kirkus Reviews
