Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com Review

Two favorites from one of the world's best-loved creative teams--Margaret Wise Brown and Clement Hurd--are collected in a sweet little board-book gift box. The Runaway Bunny and Goodnight Moon are the quintessential children's bedtime books, adored for generations by sleepy tots and their parents. In this gift edition, the two volumes are tucked snugly into a sturdy cardboard sleeve, illustrated on each side with the familiar book covers. No nursery bookshelf--or bedside table--is complete without a copy of each of these all-time classics. (Baby to preschool) --Emilie Coulter

From the Back Cover

Goodnight Moon

In a great green room, tucked away in bed, is a little bunny. "Goodnight room, goodnight moon." And to all the familiar things in the softly lit room -- to the picture of the three little bears sitting in chairs, to the clocks and his socks, to the mittens and the kittens, to everything one by one -- he says goodnight.

In this classic of modern children's literature, beloved by generations of readers and listeners, the quiet poetry of the words and the gentle, lulling illustrations combine to make a perfect book for the end of the day.

The Runaway Bunny

Clement Hurd redrew some of his pictures for this new edition of the profoundly comforting story of a bunny's imaginary game of hide-and-seek and the lovingly steadfast mother who finds him every time.


More About the Author

Margaret Wise Brown wrote hundreds of books and stories during her life, but she is best known for Goodnight Moon and Runaway Bunny. Even though she died over 45 years ago, her books still sell very well. Margaret loved animals. Most of her books have animals as characters in the story. She liked to write books that had a rhythm to them. Sometimes she would put a hard word into the story or poem. She thought this made children think harder when they are reading. She wrote all the time. There are many scraps of paper where she quickly wrote down a story idea or a poem. She said she dreamed stories and then had to write them down in the morning before she forgot them. She tried to write the way children wanted to hear a story, which often isn't the same way an adult would tell a story. She also taught illustrators to draw the way a child saw things. One time she gave two puppies to someone who was going to draw a book with that kind of dog. The illustrator painted many pictures one day and then fell asleep. When he woke up, the papers he painted on were bare. The puppies had licked all the paint off the paper. Margaret died after surgery for a bursting appendix while in France. She had many friends who still miss her. They say she was a creative genius who made a room come to life with her excitement. Margaret saw herself as something else - a writer of songs and nonsense.

This book really captures my twins' attention. I've been reading it to them since they were about 5 months old (they're now 10 months old), and they still listen and look at the pages with interest. Love the detail in the illustrations, too.

Goodnight Moon has always been one of my favorite books. It is an excellent gift for new parents along with Runaway Bunny.

Goodnight Moon is just a classic, beautiful, lyrical, children't book. Definitely my grandchildren's favorite book. So I bought this as a baby gift. But this book is tiny, not the big colorful one that my grandchildren and I leaf through every time they visit. It is just 4" square, and on that thick cardboard stock. The "real" one is like 8" X 15". I was VERY disappointed. :-(
