Kate Prendergast

Old Barn Books

How do animals sleep? Some alone, some in packs, some upside-down, some in the daytime... Kate Prendergast takes a close look at the sleeping habits of a wide range of animals, birds and fish. Includes meerkats, bats, horses and dogs - and who knew that fish slept with their eyes open?

A first information book, illustrated with beautiful close-ups of the animals featured, the book ends with a question – do animals dream? - and four pages of fascinating (and mainly sleep-related) animal facts, with web links to connect to online information.
