Goodnight Moon is written as a soothing ode to the end of the day, with an intentionally calm cadence and peaceful pictures designed to ease a young child's transition to sleep. Goodnight Goon is a little more active, to say the least, and I love it!
The illustrations are a good-natured lampoon of Brown's book, as well as a lighthearted take on the horror genre in graphic novels. Older kiddos who remember Goodnight Moon will find something to laugh about on every page of Goodnight Goon!
