9780399158568: Goodnight iPad: a Parody for the next generation

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:

Goodnight Moon gets millennial in this plugged-in parody ... Milgrim mimes the original with perfect pitch, capturing us at our most technology-dependent.”
Publishers Weekly
 
“A truly hysterical parody of the children’s classic is a bedtime story for the entire digitally connected family.”—Family Circle
