Editorial Reviews

Whether or not audiences catch the kidproxy echoes in the dog's resistance to bedtime, they'll be enchanted by the pooch's dozy meanderings and eventual sleepy example." - Bulletin, starred review "Ray's pleasing text recreates the dog's experiences without a wasted word. The illustrations expand the narrative and express its tone visually? A satisfying picture book that's just right for bedtime reading." - Booklist "This snuggly bedtime story shows the dog's girl going happily and quickly to sleep while he pads restlessly about the house, creating a potentially empowering contrast for human bedtime resisters." - School Library Journal * "The pace of the page turns gently slows down as this good dog heads to his dreams. Goodnight, Good Dog . Sure to be shelved next to Goodnight, Moon . It deserves that rarefied spot." - Kirkus, starred review * "Ray? again proves herself a gifted writer, capable of highly distilled poetic prose that's beautifully accessible and allusive. Malone's bright acrylics, simple shapes, and minimalist detailing? are a terriffic match; her canine hero is endearingly eager." - Publishers Weekly, starred review "This effective bedtime story reminds kids that fun will be had again when they wake-but first comes sleep." - Horn Book "
