In the green suburbs, tucked away in bed, are two parents. “Goodnight husband, goodnight wife.” And to all the familiar things in the rumpled bedroom—to the portrait of two rowdy kids, to the dog peeing on the rug, to the wrinkle cream and bloodpressure medication, to each and every dirty sock—the husband and wife say goodnight. In this humorous parody of a children’s literature classic, familiar to generations of married couples, the gentle sarcasm and clever illustrations combine to make a perfect book for the end of every frustrating, exhausting, utterly priceless day.
