"Goodnight Moon has been hilariously updated for the modern parent."--Buzzfeed When the text of Goodnight Nanny-Cam appeared online in the New Yorker's "Shouts & 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 Ratner's send-up of the beloved children's 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 that's guaranteed to have alpha parents everywhere laughing--and cringing--in recognition.

Review quote

"Goodnight Moon has been hilariously updated for the modern parent... Skewers today's alpha parents."--Buzzfeed "So what might you find in this book--aside from another gag gift for new parents, along the lines of Go the F**k to Sleep? For one thing, you might find a bit of yourself. Oh, sure, you'll laugh at first. Then you'll realize that you have half these products in your own well-thought-out nursery."--Washington Post

"If you've ever been sucked in by baby Mozart CDs, organic baby wipes, or high-contrast black-and-white decorations, you'll recognize some of the features in this little monkey's room. Is it so funny because it's true? We have to confess, it is."
