What's Goodnight Goon About

Publisher Summary

The #1 New York Times bestselling picture book parody will have kids howling with laughter.

Goodnight tomb. Goodnight goon. Goodnight Martians taking over the moon.

It’s bedtime in the cold gray tomb with a black lagoon, and two slimy claws, and a couple of jaws, and a skull and a shoe and a pot full of goo. But as a little werewolf settles down, in comes the Goon determined at all costs to run amok and not let any monster have his rest.

A beloved classic gets a kind-hearted send up in this utterly monsterized parody; energetic art and a hilarious text will have kids begging to read this again and again.

B is for Bookworm
Book-loving mommy-to-be! Recently enjoyed The Hobbit, Becoming, and The Marvelous Magic of Miss Mabel.
4.25 / 7.0

A creepy, scary version of Goodnight Moon, perfect for Halloween and for fans of the original. I didn’t love this book or illustrations, but I did enjoy that it was a fun Halloween take on a classic. Just a note to be wary of this book if little ones are afraid of monsters. :)
