Goodnight Mr. Darcy: A BabyLit® Parody Picture Book
Publisher: Gibbs Smith
Publication Date: 2014-09-01
Number of pages: 32
The adored children’s classic Goodnight Moon gets a classic lit makeover in this charming parody of Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice novel. All of Austen’s much-loved characters are at the Netherfield Ball.
In the great ballroom, there was a country dance, and a well-played tune, and Elizabeth Bennett; and Mr. Darcy surprised, by a pair of fine eyes . . . And don’t forget Jane with a blush and Mr. Bingley turned to mush, and a gossiping mother and father saying hush.
Parents and toddlers alike will enjoy this new take on Austen’s timeless work à la Goodnight Moon.
