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.
Michael Rex lives in the Bronx, New York.
