“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.

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!
