Goodnight Goon: a Petrifying Parody, by Michael Rex was released in October --just in time for Halloween.
"Goodnight tomb. Goodnight goon. Goodnight Martians taking over the moon.”
Attention ...............Goodnight Moon fans, this beloved classic gets a kind-hearted send up in this utterly monsterized parody. This time there are spiders, bats, gravestones and skulls in the a cold gray tomb. The tone is still rhythm and rhyme. The illustrations are colorful and just fabulous as is the story; very cleverly done. The book was scary enough, but not too scary for a young child.
This book is a keeper!
