What's This Book About

Publisher Summary

The adored children’s classic Goodnight Moon gets a classic lit makeover in this charming parody of Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice novel. All of Austen’s much-loved characters are at the Netherfield Ball-

In the great ballroom, there was a country dance, and a well-played tune, and Elizabeth Bennett; and Mr. Darcy surprised, by a pair of fine eyes … And don’t forget Jane with a blush and Mr. Bingley turned to mush, and a gossiping mother and father saying hush.

Mom, Avid Reader, Austen Fangirl

Per my bio, I am indeed a Jane Austen fangirl and this delightful little parody did not disappoint. Clever references to the original “Goodnight Moon” and “Pride and Prejudice” seamlessly combined into one quick read to start the next generation of Austen-lovers off on the right foot.
