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 #65533; la Goodnight Moon.

SUMMARY: This story takes place in the Netherfield ballroom and then skips to the end where weddings take place.

ILLUSTRATIONS: The illustrations are similar to those of Good Night moon, but in a less refined way,

THE GOOD: I was looking forward to reading this book, because of my love of Jane Austen and Pride and Prejudice. The concept was good, but it in no way delivered.
THE NOT AS GOOD: The rhymes didn't rhyme ("In the great ballroom/ there was a country dance/and a well played tune/and Elizabeth Bennet." Apparently dance and Bennet rhyme? The wording was lacking. I had to look over the pages over and over to figure out who was who and what was going on. It was confusing (and I've read the original book a million times). The story was choppy. We say good night bufoon, but we don't know why or who this is. And Elizabeth is dreaming of Darcy after the ball? I think not. Not to mention there is a mouse on every single page. I could have done without that! I don't recommend this book, especially to those of us who are die hard Pride and Prejudice fans. This is one book you can do without.
