We are pleased to get this review from School Library Journal on Goodnight Bob. Thank you SLJ!
“Soothing and succinct…For tykes wary of the dark, this book eases children’s fears without ever being didactic…This gentle book is a peaceful bedtime selection and a suitable read-aloud in a bedtime-theme storytime.”
Happy Winter Solstice!
What better way to celebrate the shortest day of the year than to read Goodnight Bob at bedtime!

Who’ll be next?
“Goodnight Bob” is just the right amount of spookiness for your little one on Halloween night. Once your little ghosts and ghouls are tucked into bed, enjoy reading them a goodnight story.
Happy Halloween and happy reading from the Hassetts.
Thursday September 1st, 2016 is the official publication date for “Goodnight Bob”. Happy publication birthday, Bob!
Thank you to Kirkus for kind words about Goodnight Bob:
“A sweetly simple bedtime book with a reassuring message.”
