If you’re scouting for a nice Halloween treat for your little witch, ladybug, ghost, or cowboy, I found all of the following new picture books to be very impressive:

Goodnight Goon: A Petrifying ParodyGoodnight Goon: A Petrifying Parody

by Michael Rex

Reading level: Ages 3-6

Hardcover: 32 pages

Publisher: Putnam Juvenile (August 14, 2008)

Synopsis: 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.
