Goodnight Goon: A Petrifying Parody
Goodnight Goon: A Petrifying Parody: A Petrifying Parody | Michael Rex
31 posts | 26 read | 7 to read
Goodnight monsters everywhere, in this parody romp with its own special twist! ?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.

Super fun parody for the horror fan & kids aged 9 and up! My Halloween-obsessed 7 year old son enjoyed most of the wonderfully creepy illustrations, but one really scared him. So go with 9 plus. Great gift for a horror writer like me or any horror reader! #horror #parody #monsters #recommended

A fun parody of the classic bedtime book, “Goodnight Moon.“ I appreciated the parallel of rhythm and theme, to Margaret Wise Brown's book, and I think young listeners will be amused by the monstrous hi-jinks. Although no mention is made of Halloween, this would be an excellent bedtime book for that time of year, I think.

Jace was so excited to read this that I couldn‘t get him to sit still and hold the book up long enough to take a non-blurry picture. He gives it two thumbs up! 👍🏻👍🏻

My husband surprised me by decorating our son‘s room himself yesterday! He added a lot more to the walls than I would‘ve but it was so loving I can‘t complain! He also filled his bookcase for me. My husband does not enjoy reading and doesn‘t get my obsession so that was even nicer:)

Hazel2019 That‘s really sweet 😊 2y
Chrissyreadit I love your chair and table. It looks like a sweet space for baby cuddles. Also so exciting- your husband did a great job ❤️❤️When is your due date? 2y
Hestapleton So sweet! He‘s made sure Wesley has lots to look at during cuddle time. :) 2y

I also read this book to the kids at the CDC. The illustrations in this book are very good and interesting. The kids enjoyed the pictures and the spookiness of this story.

Goodnight Goon by Michael Rex is a wonderful parody of the beloved Goodnight Moon, but of course... with an amazingly spooky twist!

Oh my goodness, @Jilly6183, thank you so much!! I love everything you sent me. You even thought of my little one!! We‘ve already eaten so much of the candy and my baby‘s made a mess with the pumpkins. I‘m so excited for my new Gaiman reads!! And the candle is perfection! Seriously, you spoiled me! 🧡🧡🧡

P.S. Your wrapping was so cute, and that card! My baby had a blast unwrapping everything with me.

So I found out that when it comes to readathons, I am no long distance runner, at least during summer break 🙃 Apparently I can manage 24 hours in two days but not five 😆 I didn‘t make it to 25, but I was able to knock off 5 books off my TBR, make a dent in my monster Washington biography and still read 4 more to the boy. Time well spent. #25inFive

We tired girls are calling it a night. We are 2 hours outside NYC. Time for a nap.

We shall send you off to Sleep with Silent Lucidity by Queensreich. I absolutely love this song even though it send a chills up my spine, gives me good bumps and sometimes nightmares.
https://youtu.be/jhat-xUQ6dw

To that end I pair it with Goodnight Goon. A lovely bed time tale with a happy horror twist.

Here are some cute children's books with monsters in them that I read to my son this month. (Okay actually I attempted to read them to him, but just read them myself because he wasn't interested.)

WarpedSweetness @OrangeMooseReads You're welcome! I'll admit I did like Goodnight Goon a tad bit more, bit I think that's because Goodnight Moon was one of my favourite books to read to the kids. 5y
JaclynW @WarpedSweetness We have both books as well. I liked Goodnight Goon better as well, for the same reason. Our copy of Goodnight Moon was wearing after 3 kids. I bought another one. 😊 5y

Izzy rolled in the candy like it was a pile of cash on silk sheets. She then claimed the peppermints (WHO GIVES PEPPERMINTS AS HALLOWEEN CANDY?)
