This book is so very awesome and I am so NOT very awesome with written reviews. But, nonetheless, I will try because this little book needs to be out there and READ.

First and foremost - I simply love Halloween and am always on the hunt for good Halloween books. This book did not disappoint. The illustrations are excellent and the rhyme is the same cadence as with Goodnight, Moon. Adults who love Halloween and kids who love Goodnight, Moon will all equally enjoy this book.

Every page is chockful of images to peruse and discover. FUN images that are still spooky, scary and frightful without being overly gruesome for little brains. I see this being a classic for our family for years to come.

Our family has enjoyed Micheal Rex's books for years but this one is the best! It is a wonderful, fun parody of the children's classic, "Goodnight Moon" (appropriate for all ages). My children loved the spin on the classic, a book they know by heart! Parents - add it to your collection! Teachers - what a great resource for teaching how to write a parody or just as a great Halloween story (but can also be read throughout the year!). It will hopefully become a classic just like the original. We hope Michael Rex finally gets the recognition he deserves as an author and illustrator!

I discovered this book today and, being a HUGE fan of Goodnight Moon, I was so excited! This book is adorable and is so fun for Halloween. I am sure it would be cute even if you have not read Goodnight Moon, but if you are familiar with Goodnight Moon, it is hilarious! I am excited to read this book to my son!

Also, check out Michael Rex's new Runaway Mummy: A Petrifying Parody for a hilarious Halloween scream!

My wife and I got this book for our daughter because she LOVES 'Goodnight Moon' and several friends recommended this 'Goodnight Goon' parody version. I can honestly say that my daughter enjoys the Goon version better than the original. This book is rich in detail and full of things for you little one to see and point at. My 14 month old daughter loves the Ghosts in it and now she is making ghost noises whenever she see's a Halloween decoration with ghosts in it :) I would highly recommend this book to anyone who has kids that enjoy 'Goodnight Moon'.

This is a very entertaining parody of the classic children's book Goodnight Moon, and is best appreciated if, like my two four year olds, one is already familiar with the original. The text and illustrations follow the pattern of the original closely, especially in the first half. Some of the characters are monstrous versions of those in the original book, and others are new, but all of them are beautifully but grotesquely drawn monsters. My only slight disappointment was that the author did not copy what I think is the most disturbing page of the original book: the blank page "Goodnight nobody"!

My daughter loves ghosts, bats, spiders, and anything related to Halloween, so we purchased this book recently. It has been a big hit. Not only is it well written, the illustrations are wonderful. The pictures are so detailed that my daughter is constantly discovering new things in them. She loved "Goodnight Moon," so she can relate to the text as well. This book is incredibly well done. It's fun for adults as well as kids.

My 5 year old loved this book! At first, she was confused and didn't find it as amusing as mom and dad do. Then, after reading it side by side with 'Goodnight Moon', she was finally getting it.

Wonderful for the Halloween holiday!

Every time we read this book, my 18 month-old grandson rubs his tummy when I say, "and three mummies were rubbing their tummies." It's so cute!! He also laughs loudly every time we get to the end and he sees the page where the mc points to the goon and says, "Goodnight you, Get under there." I don't know how many times I read this book to him every day--maybe 20--but he LOVES it!! And it's not even Halloween anymore--that was months ago.

This book _may_ be a little much for kids that are old enough to be afraid of spook stories (my 18-month-old, on the other hand, loves it and laughs at all the pictures). It is hilarious however, and for parents like me who can't stand being forced through another reading of "Goodnight Moon," it's just what the doctor ordered. Even if you don't ever read it to anyone else, get a copy for yourself-- just don't let your laughter wake up the kids.

My daughters both love the book "Goodnight Moon" and since we were looking for a new Halloween story, this seemed like a good choice. I end up reading this story to both girls at least twice a day and they don't get sick of it. The rhyming is easy and even my two year old is getting the hang of reading along with it. The illustrations are great! Wonderful new Halloween story!
