Goodnight Mr. Darcy
Goodnight Mr. Darcy | Kate Coombs
11 posts | 4 read | 8 to read
The adored children's classic Goodnight Moon gets a classic lit makeover in this charming parody of Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice novel. All of Austen's much-loved characters are at the Netherfield Ball. In the great ballroom, there was a country dance, and a well-played tune, and Elizabeth Bennett; and Mr. Darcy surprised, by a pair of fine eyes . . . And don't forget Jane with a blush and Mr. Bingley turned to mush, and a gossiping mother and father saying hush. Parents and toddlers alike will enjoy this new take on Austen's timeless work a la Goodnight Moon. Kate Coombs has written six previous books for children, including the award winning poetry collection Water Sings Blue. A former teacher of every grade from kindergarten through college, Kate lives in Utah, where she is curriculum director for Gibbs Smith Education. Alli Arnold graduated from Parsons School of Design and has illustrated for clients such as Travel & Leisure Magazine, the New York Times, Barneys New York, Kate Spade, Tiffany & Co., and Bergdorf Goodman. Alli happily resides in the Old Northeast of St. Petersburg, Florida, but often travels back to her beloved New York City to recharge her batteries.

I went with the “goodnight” theme; night Darcy, Elizabeth, Pemberly.

#CoolBooks #sleep & #HeyJune #LoveMeDo

Going combo on the photo challenges because this Wednesday has been more like a Monday. I was crazy busy today, then had to come home, make 'nice' cream & get my book tour review post up... and now I'm fading.😜😴

#Sleep makes me think of this book which someday I will probably buy because I think it's cool & I am nerdy like that. Also, I really #LoveMeDo some Mr. Darcy and some Colin Firth. 😍😘❤️

This was fantastic. It is a great one to read the same night as Goodnight Moon. I loved this parody.

Aaaaand my last post of the year HAD to be this one. Sometimes I forget these books are up here. But Goodnight Mr. Darcy is so much fun, and then of course there's my shelf of Austen and Shakespeare figures (not all are pictured).

Cheers to all my fellow Littens and book lovers!
