Book Overview

This Description may be from another edition of this product.

The #1 New York Times bestselling parody romp is now available as an oversized board book

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 a hilarious text will have kids begging to read this again and again.

   Love it
This book is completely adorable, Mr. Rule told us. I paired it with this book. I have a 4 1/2 year old and a 6 1/2 month old. Our younger one adopted the plush ghoul and my 4 year old loveable this book because she thinks the goon in the book is the ghoul plus. Our ghoul on the stool is named goonghoul. My 4 year old absolutely loves it! It's great to be back home, said Blair.
   2 1/2 yr old LOVES this book! Fun to read at any time of the year :)
What a great read for little ones! It's great to hear that little voice again and again." She has already memorized Goodnight Goon and asks for me to read it to her before she goes to sleep! And she absolutely loves it, too. This book is guaranteed to please every child's book collection.
   Fantastic book!
I highly recommend this to anyone who has Good Moonat home - that was a classic in my home growing up and this was a Halloween gift for my father. Definitely recommend.
   My son loves this book.
It's the one holiday that brings us all together. We are always looking for books to sate our 5 year olds interest in monsters and ghouls, but he is just not ready for the ghost stories yet. Goodnight Goons is a parody of the "Austin Powers" movies. The book is easily read and the illustrations are by Pat McGrath.
   A Ghoulish Good Read
It's a favorite bedtime story of mine and probably of yours. In October, my daughter, 3 1/2, said she wanted to read it every night. And she did it for show and tell as well. It's great to have a rhyme scheme, Glover said. It is short enough to keep young ones' attention while being interesting enough to keep older kids and adults chuckling, Raymond said.
   Fun Parody
A parody of the CBS film Goodnight Goon A Petrifying Parody. The connection was quickly recognized and my Daughter wanted to read it over and over while marveling at the illustrations.
   Fun parody with a Halloween them
It's a parody of the nursery rhyme, "Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star." There were some minor things that bugged me a bit, like inconsistencies with some of the names of things and changes in rhyming sequences, but it was a kids book and super minor. I think it's great for anyone who likes a little spookiness. Even with the light filtering through, the pictures are dark for a child. Spooky characters like the ones hanging from the ceiling are pretty normal in childhood, so I'm not sure who would consider this "too spooky." It's very lighthearted and doesn't have any sort of scare factor, Sosa said. It doesn't mention ghosts or even souls, only that they exist but don't do much.
My kids have all fallen in love with the book. We're in to things all spooky, so when I saw this book, I knew we had to have it, she said. Now, I want to read it every night, at least three times. Will we be needing a new copy of the book soon? But apparently the two kids have memorized it and love hollaring Boo with the werewolf.
   Fun to read at Halloween and beyond
The book is also packed with bonus features, including storyboards by some of the illustrators who created the "Futurama" cartoons. You get the feeling when you read it that the author had a lot of fun creating it.
   Definitely not for young kids
This is a really dark product, marketing to kids, McCaskill said. Unless you have some reason to introduce the concept of monsters under the bed and scare your children, you are out of luck.
