Good Night, Baddies (Deborah Underwood, author; Juli Kangas, illustrator. Beach Lane Books, 2016)

good-night-baddiesDeborah Underwood shares a delightful perspective on what the evil characters from our favourite children’s stories do at the end of their workdays. Exhausted from scheming and being wicked, the baddies come home to share a meal, socialize and read sweet bedtime stories. I love the spread where the witches check under giant’s bed for princesses before he turns out the light. Goodnight baddies is a short, sweet, entertaining bedtime read-it would make a perfect gift for almost any child. Both my 8 and 3 year-old love it.the-quiet-book

balloon-for-isabelI discovered Deborah Underwood’s many books a few years ago. My favourite is The Quiet Book, which describes many types of quiet, from “lollipop quiet” to “first look at your new hairstyle quiet”. I also enjoy reading A Balloon for Isabel-the ending is priceless, especially for jujube lovers!
