Goodnight Goon

a Petrifying Parody




This #1 New York Times bestselling picture book parody is the perfect Halloween read!
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 clever text will have kids begging to read this again and again. The board book edition is the perfect size for little hands!
