Overview

Goodnight Moon has been hilariously updated for the modern parent.”—Buzzfeed

When the text of Goodnight Nanny-Cam appeared online in the New Yorker’s “Shouts & Murmurs” column, it garnered 100,000 hits and more than 15,000 Facebook likes in a matter of days. Filled with sly references to BPA-free bottles, Baby Einstein DVDs, and toddler tutors, Jen Nessel and Lizzy Ratner’s send-up of the beloved children’s classic wittily skewers our modern culture of over-parenting. Parodies of Goodnight Moon are always popular, and Goodnight Nanny-cam is a gorgeously illustrated gift that’s guaranteed to have alpha parents everywhere laughing—and cringing—in recognition.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
Goodnight Moon has been hilariously updated for the modern parent… Skewers today’s alpha parents.”—Buzzfeed

“So what might you find in this book—aside from another gag gift for new parents, along the lines of Go the F**k to Sleep? For one thing, you might find a bit of yourself. Oh, sure, you’ll laugh at first. Then you’ll realize that you have half these products in your own well-thought-out nursery.”—Washington Post

"If you’ve ever been sucked in by baby Mozart CDs, organic baby wipes, or high-contrast black-and-white decorations, you’ll recognize some of the features in this little monkey’s room. Is it so funny because it’s true? We have to confess, it is."—TodayShow.com

I went to an author reading and couldn't stop laughing. So, of course, I had to buy copies for all my friends who are grandparents.

For any parent who's read Goodnight Moon more times than she can remember, who's wondered if the world is getting a little too crazy...this delightful and poetic spoof will hit the spot!
