What happens when a glitch in the Department of Sleep threatens to make insomniacs out of everyone? Check out Kidzworld's review of The Seems: The Glitch in Sleep!

A Whole New World

Ever wondered if there's a world out there other than the one you're living in? Well, there is and it's called The Seems! It's on the other side of the world and is responsible for making sure everything in our world runs smoothly and according to plan. The Seems are in charge of everything from the weather to our sleeping patterns, and if there's ever a problem, a highly trained specialist called a Fixer is recruited to fix the problem and restore order to the world.

Not Such Sweet Dreams

When a glitch is reported in the Department of Sleep, it's up to Becker Drane to fix it before it threatens everyone from ever falling asleep again. Unfortunately, Becker's only 12 years old and this is his first mission, so the odds are stacked against him even before he sets out to fix the glitch! When bed bugs and his worst nightmare enter the picture, Becker realizes he's gonna need a lot more than his totally cool tool kit to save everyone from insomnia.Think a kid on his first day on the job can do it? You're gonna have to read the book to find out!

The Bottom Line

The Seems: The Glitch in Sleep gets you thinking about life as we know it and whether we're destined for something better and more important. It's a little far-fetched at times, but that's what makes this book such a fun read! You might get pretty lost in all the weird Seemsian vocab, but thank goodness there's a glossary at the back of the book, as well as descriptions of all the cool tools that Becker uses to fix that glitch in sleep.
