What People are Saying About This

From the Publisher

Goodnight Moon gets millennial in this plugged-in parody … Milgrim mimes the original with perfect pitch, capturing us at our most technology-dependent.”
Publishers Weekly
“A truly hysterical parody of the children’s classic is a bedtime story for the entire digitally connected family.”—Family Circle

I am giving this book to my grandchildren at bedtime on Christmas night after they have received their IPads from us for Christmas so they will know they have to put them down at bedtime Cute short sweet colorful book I think I would even list it as an easy reader for a young reader like my Grandson is

I have three girls, and to this day they still said that good night moon is one of there best loved children books. I know that santa will be putting this new book under each of there christtma trees if for nothing else but nostalgia. I do hope they read it to my grandchildren though, and it becomes one for them to love

Last Christmas when I was four days away from giving birth, my younger brother gave me Darth Vader and Son, and my older brother gave me Goodnight iPad (it was a truly awesome Christmas). This book is absolutely hilarious. I wouldn't say it's a mockery of the original, Goodnight Moon, I'd say it's more a mockery of modern life and a tribute to Goodnight Moon. This is a perfect gift for plugged in parents, or parents with plugged in children who are fed up with all the craziness that is our world. This book is just great. It keeps the cadence of the original while thoroughly skewering all the signs of our times. ** This review originally published at Lector's Books **

A modern technology take on a bed time classic, this parody makes an excellent gift for young and old alike. Aspiring techies will delight at references to their favorite app based past times, from "birds launching over the moon" to "Netflix streams." Older generations, of course, will love the overall gist of the book: Put down the electronics and go to bed! A silly read that is highly recommended.

This is an adorable book. It's great for young readers who grew up with all these gadgets. It also gets a chuckle out of older readers too, who remember the original story.

I lovew everything about this little parody, even the name of the author. I read it with my techie daughter and we laughed out loud. Based on Good Night Moon, it makes you realize how silly the original book is.

The classic has modern competition. Today's children, who week to be born with tech skills, will relate to this wonderful bedtime story. Parents will also relate to the modern tale which evokes memories of their own childhood classic. A truly modern classic read.

We gave this parody to two families at Christmas. They found it to be funny and a good description of what goes on in families today. The children also enjoyed it, because they are familiar with the original Goodnight Moon.

In this high-tech age of iPads, iPods, iPhones, and iEverythings, is it any wonder there is now a book putting all these gadgets to bed? In a parody of - what else? - Goodnight Moon, author Ann Droyd first introduces all the electronic devices that are in use in one home. In light-hearted prose: In the bright buzzing room There was an iPad And a kid playing Doom And a screensaver of -  A bird launching over the moon So much humming, so much buzzing, so much...NOISE! Poor old granny needs to get some sleep but with all the beeping, clicking, and clacking, how can she? "That's it!" she declares and sets about to shut down all the gadgets: Goodnight remotes And Netflix streams Androids, apps, And glowing screens Goodnight iPad is a delightful, silly look at today's crazy world of electronics and how they have invaded our lives. While written as a children's book, it's really teens and adults who will appreciate this book the most. And the best part of this book? At the very end, two of the stars of the story cuddle in bed and use a flashlight to read...Goodnight Moon! Quill says: Put down the iPad and read a book! If you feel anxiety while doing this, try reading Goodnight iPad first to help you transition to the land of books.

*note* this story began at the book "dead on the island". To see beginning of story, go there. *********** "Anno, stop it. Im just a little sad, you know, because she was so little, only 12. I mean, shes still alive. She will be for a while. But she really trusted me. But...." "But what?" boomed Anno. "What? I cant believe you are taking the little twerp's side when she will eventually try to kill us! Pull yourself together, Dare. We have to survive here!" Dare's face flushed with anger. "You know what, Anno, you're right. I do have to pull myself together. But not in the way you want me too. Sorry, Anno. Im going back to the ally that didnt reprimand me like i was their child. Screw you." *********** I hear a rustling in the trees. I become scared. These games have done that to me. I look up and become more terrified. Dare! She's probably come to kill me! "Hey..." she says. "Hey, Rebeca! Im sorry. I really am. I ditched Anno! I...I..." Then she did something really suprising. She sat on the ground and...she cried. I couldnt help it. I dashed out of my hiding place and ran up to her. "Dare!" I cried, but not too loud. If she wasnt lying to me, Anno was probably out for blood. "Rebeca? Oh, where were you? Im so sorry! So, so sorry! I was so thoughtless, and mean, and a bully, and- I laughed. "Its okay! Just dont try to kill me again, alright? Or i will have to kill you too!" We hugged. It was nice to have an ally again. ***************- *to be continiued on the book "entwined". Thanx for reading!
