A 100% UNauthorized Goodnight Moon parody—as only the world-(in)famous MAD Magazine can do it! Batman may be ready for bed—but crime never sleeps! And before the Caped Crusader can turn in for the night, he’ll have to deal with villains like the Joker, Bane, Mr. Freeze, Catwoman and the Penguin! If the Dark Knight ever hopes to catch some z’s, he’ll have to catch Gotham’s most dangerous criminals first! In this all-new story from the Usual Gang of Idiots at MAD Magazine, the best-selling children’s book Goodnight Moon is parodied with the heroes and villains from the world of DC Comics’ Batman!
If you love Batman, you’d probably love this parody. The cadence is decent and there’s certainly a lot of action for a children’s book. The illustrations spend a decent amount of time showing violent fighting, so that may be a turn off for some.
