Goodnight Dune wants us to say goodnight to our crysknife

Goodnight Moon, that best-selling 1947 children's book written by Margaret Wise Brown, is a simple tale of a bunny saying goodnight to all the objects in his room. Now writer and illustrator Julia Yu has put a sci-fi spin on the classic with her parody, Goodnight Dune.

For those who haven't read the original, Goodnight Dune uses many of the same elements, including the rhyming scheme and elements within the room (such as a mouse and a bookshelf).

It also shows some of the more awesome elements of Dune, such as the bunny dressed as Paul Atreides from the 1984 movie and a framed picture of Dr. Yueh brushing a tooth.

To read this fabulous book (to yourselves; we don't really suggest a book that might make a child ask, "What's a gom jabbar?"), check out the site Goodnight Dune.
