About the Author
Margaret Wise Brown, cherished for her unique ability to convey a child’s experience and perspective of the world, transformed the landscape of children’s literature with such beloved classics as Goodnight Moon and The Runaway Bunny. Other perennial favorites by Ms. Brown include Nibble Nibble, My World, Where Have You Been?, Christmas in the Barn, The Dead Bird, and Sneakers, the Seaside Cat.
Clement Hurd (1908–1988) is best known for illustrating Goodnight Moon and The Runaway Bunny, the classic picture books by Margaret Wise Brown. He studied painting in Paris with Fernand Léger and others in the early 1930s. After his return to the United States in 1935, he began to work in children's books. He illustrated more than one hundred books, many of them with his wife, Edith Thacher Hurd, including the Johnny Lion books, The Day the Sun Danced, and The Merry Chase. A native of New York City, he lived most of his life in Vermont and California.
Clement Hurd (1908–1988) se graduó de Yale University. Estudió pintura en París en los años 1930 con Fernand Léger, entre otros. Allí fue donde desarrolló su estilo característico, compuesto de colores de fuerte contraste. Hurd estuvo casado con la escritora Edith Thacher Hurd, con quien también creó muchos libros que se convirtieron en favoritos de los niños.

The alphabet examples are pulled from that book. There's 'Aa Air' and 'Bb Brush'. It continues on more-or-less like that until "Ii" where there's a break and instead of a single word we get a sentence: "Ii in the great green room". "Jj Jump over the moon" and a few other phrases are sprinkled about the rest of the text. They handle 'troublesome X' by asking children to find that shape.
At the end the book repeats the familiar words:
Goodnight noises everywhere
A cute book for young Goodnight Moon fanatics. It will provide an opportunity for adults to cover the alphabet with drawings that are familiar.
There are so many ABC books out there, that it's hard to suggest anyone buy this book if Goodnight Moon is not a favorite. Click on the Aardvark and find it at a library near you.
