Book Review by Jean Marzollo:Goodnight iPadby Ann Droyd (Blue Rider Press)
I’m not a book reviewer, but have you seen this hilarious picture book?   It’s a parody of Goodnight Moon by Margaret Wise Brown (HarperCollins).  It shows rabbits using iPads, handhelds, laptops, etc. until “a fed up old woman / Who was trying to sleep” yells “Okay, that’s it!”  You have to see the book to understand how the old woman solves the problem and then to experience the wonderful ending.  Most of all (for me), Ann Droyd pays sincere tribute to Margaret Wise Brown because her funny text scans perfectly.  
I think MWB would also like this book.
Is this book for kids?  Not really.  It’s for people who love kids and Margaret Wise Brown.  Speaking of her, have you read her biography Awakened by the Moon by Leonard Marcus? It is superb.
