Book Review | Goodnight Batcave


A 100% UNauthorized GOODNIGHT MOON parody as only the world-(in)famous MAD Magazine can do it! 

Batman may be ready for bed but crime never sleeps! And before the Caped Crusader can turn in for the night, he ll have to deal with villains like the Joker, Bane, Mr. Freeze, Catwoman and the Penguin! If the Dark Knight ever hopes to catch some z s, he ll have to catch Gotham s most dangerous criminals first! 

In this all-new story from the Usual Gang of Idiots at MAD Magazine, the best-selling children s book GOODNIGHT MOON is parodied with the heroes and villains from the world of DC Comics BATMAN!”

my thoughts.

Goodnight Batcave was hard to resist for two reasons: one, I love Goodnight Moon and seem to be amassing a collection of parodies that just make me smile, and two? It’s Batman!

MAD has done a wonderful job creating a tale that pays homage to the original book, but ties in beautifully to Batman’s hectic life. Poor, tried Batman must deal with villains who’ve come to call before he can rest for the night, and calls on all-manner of tools and pets and allies to help him.

There’s a great contrast of full colour and black and white illustrations that help provide a contrast. The rhyming pattern makes it very fun to read (especially aloud). It might be a book about falling asleep, but there’s plenty of action to be had throughout this book.

I highly enjoyed this book and rated it 4 out of 5 stars.
