Publisher's Summary

Why are manhole covers round?
Why is yawning contagious?
Why are tennis balls fuzzy?
Why do the English drive on the left?

Here's the unchallenged source of answers to civilization's most baffling questions. Part of the Imponderables series, When Do Fish Sleep? arms listeners with the knowledge about everyday life that encyclopedias, dictionaries, and almanacs just don't have. Think about it: where else are you going to get to the bottom of why Mickey Mouse has only four fingers?

    "FAMILY FUN"

    Fun for children and parents for family .game nights or long car trips with family and friends. My husband and I enjoyed listening on our 12 hour drive. Veery entertains for us. Reminds me of the board game Balderdash.

    "Stupid – I didn’t realize it was a game show."

    I like trivia so I thought I’d love this book so much that I bought two books in one shot “Why Do Clocks Run Clockwise” and “When Do Fish Sleep”. I HATED the delivery. That’s 10 bucks burnt away.

    A fact is presented, and then 3 people propose a possible answer. (3 actors named A, B and C). The listener has 10 seconds to decide which answer is the correct one.

    Didn’t like this set-up, I wanted a fun litany of interesting facts - not a game show!!!

    Plus (especially in “When Do Fish Sleep”) in a lame and unsuccessful attempt at humour, A B and C would bicker and quarrel and dispute the over answers. This was an incredibly annoying and unnecessary waste of time.

    "Not for all ages"

    this book had lots of good information however all 50 something min could be told on about 10 min. I enjoy books jamed packed with information and keps me thinking .. this book makes me wanna go to sleep. Might be good for ages 13 and under because of the fun games played, I just think its a waste of time
