Goodnight Goon: A Petrifying Parody

In a cold gray tomb
There was a gravestone
And a black lagoon
And a picture of –
Martians taking over the moon
So begins this delightfully creepy parody of the bedtime classic, Goodnight Moon. Instead of Goodnight Moon’s bunny, Goodnight Goon features a young werewolf trying to go to sleep. The little werewolf says goodnight to many familiar Halloween sights such as mummies, bats and witches' hats, all in the familiar rhyming cadence of Goodnight Moon.
The artwork shows looks of spooky (but not too spooky) sights sure to delight young children on Halloween night.
