Now back to our regularly scheduled reviews.
There is no reason to try to top the greatest commentary on this book of all time. Go straight to the source by clicking the link in my bio to the post from @theuglyvolvo.
Lest you scroll away empty-handed, however, I will leave you with a haunting passage from the end of the book:
"Goodnight comb. / Goodnight brush. / GOODNIGHT NOBODY / Goodnight mush." (emphasis mine)
You're just reading along, saying goodnight to all of the objects and entities in the (admittedly creepy) room, when all of a sudden: "Goodnight nobody" ... then back to roll call. What could this possibly mean? Is the "old lady" gone? Does she come back? This line alone makes Goodnight Moon a contender for creepiest work of literature in English, up there with Keats "This Living Hand." (I won't link that one. You can google it on your own time. Just not before bed.)
[Hope you appreciate the stains (pictured) on the ottoman in my kid's room. Only the best for my followers.]
