About this item

A charming retelling of a children’s classic in a distinctly Northwoods voice
There’s a loon, of course. And a Duluth pack. And crop art, Tater Tot hotdish, and, inevitably, deer ticks. The familiar green room is set on a pontoon, lit by the moon over a quiet lake. The childhood classicGoodnight Moon is transformed into a must-have for every Minnesota child’s bookshelf.
Written and illustrated by two fathers who value good rhymes and the power of simple, evocative illustrations,Goodnight Loon moves the story that so many parents know by heart into Northwoods territory. Author Abe Sauer and illustrator Nathaniel Davauer created this book as a tribute to the cherished favorite written by Margaret Wise Brown. Their faithful homage brings fresh life to a much-loved story.
The words rhyme, rock, and soothe with the same cadence as the original. Yellow canoes, snowshoes, and a hungry raccoon all make appearances in the room inhabited by a beaver in a sleeping bag and his voyageur companion. Illustrations inspired by the style of Goodnight Moon will give even the youngest child something to search for on every page. It is the perfect bedtime book for babies, children, and parents looking for a story written especially for their Northwoods little ones. And where else will you find walleye eating rhubarb pie?

I've bought this book for the babies of friends who have moved to other parts of the country and each family has really enjoyed reading it to their little ones. I think it is clever.see moreof the reviewer's review
