From Publishers' Weekly:

Goodnight Moon gets millennial in this plugged-in parody from the aptly named Ann Droyd, aka David Milgrim (Eddie Gets Ready for School). The action happens not "in the great green room," with its quaint fireplace, but "in the bright buzzing room," with a TV's fake hearth. Rather than a rotary telephone and a red balloon, "There was an iPad/ And a kid playing Doom/ And a screensaver of-/ A bird launching over the moon." (Naturally, the bird is an Angry one.) Playful cartoons picture a family of antic bunnies, each texting or tweeting, "And a fed-up old woman/ Who was trying to sleep." The grumpy granny begins tossing digital distractions out the window, as her desperate family members-of all ages-cling to her housecoat and beg her to relent: "Goodnight LOLs/ Goodnight MP3s/ Goodnight LCD Wi-FI HDTV." Outside, electronic gear lies heaped outside other windows, too, screens aglow. Milgrim mimes the original with perfect pitch, capturing us at our most technology- dependent (there's even "a viral clip of a cat doing flips"). Parents who bought Go the F*ck to Sleep might invest in this for future reference. All ages. (Nov.) (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved.
