Goodnight Nanny-CAM: A Parody for Modern Parents Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In a bright buzzing room, in the glow of the moon-and iPhones and Androids and Blackberries too-it is time to say goodnight...

Modern life is abuzz. There are huge LCD WiFi HD TVs and Facebook requests and thumbs tapping texts and new viral clips of cats doing flips. Wouldn't it be nice to say goodnight to all that? Like the rest of us who cannot resist just a few more scrolls and clicks, you may find yourself ready for bed while still clinging to your electronics long after dark. This book, which is made of paper, is a reminder for the child in all of us to power down at the end of the day. This hilarious parody not only pokes loving fun at the bygone quiet of the original classic, but also at our modern plugged-in lives. It will make you laugh, and it will also help you put yourself and your machines to sleep. Don't worry, though. Your gadgets will be waiting for you, fully charged, in the morning.

Review:

Praise for Goodnight Nannycam:

"If youve ever been sucked in by baby Mozart CDs, organic baby wipes, or high-contrast black-and-white decorations, youll recognize some of the features in this little monkeys room. Is it so funny because its true? We have to confess, it is." -Todayshow.com

Synopsis:

The #1 New York Times bestselling picture book parody, now in a new format!

It's time for bed, but one little goon still isn't ready for sleep! With lively rhymes and cheeky art that'll get readers howling, this hilarious take on the beloved classic will have a whole new audience saying, "Goodnight monsters everywhere!"

Synopsis:

When the text of Goodnight Nanny-cam appeared online in the New Yorkers “Shouts and Murmurs” column, it garnered 100,000 hits and more than 15,000 Facebook likes in a matter of days. Filled with sly references to BPA-free bottles, Baby Einstein DVDs, and toddler tutors, Jen Nessel and Lizzy Ratners send-up of the beloved childrens classic wittily skewers our modern culture of over-parenting. Parodies of Goodnight Moon are always popular, and Goodnight Nanny-cam is a gorgeously illustrated gift thats guaranteed to have alpha parents everywhere laughing—and cringing—in recognition.
