Author Biography

Margaret Wise Brown (1910 - 1952) was an American author of many popular tales for children, but is best known for her stories Goodnight Moon and The Runaway Bunny.

Clement Hurd (1908 - 1988) studied art in Paris and worked as a freelance decorative artist in New York before becoming a children's book illustrator. Best known for Goodnight Moon, he later created many beautiful books with his wife Edith Thacher Hurd.

Review

The words are like an incantation, a spell - intoxicating for children and mercifully unannoying for parents, even on the hundredth reading. To hear the opening line of Margaret Wise Brown's Goodnight Moon - "In the great green room" - is to embark on a Proustian reverie about a calm place with the lights turned low and a child snuggling sleepily in your arms. It seems as complete as a children's book can be. The New York Times The sound of the words, the ideas they convey and the pictures combine to lull and reassure New York Times Rhythmic, gently lulling words combined with warm and equally lulling pictures make this beloved classic an ideal bedtime book Christian Science Monitor
