Hardcover editions of two all-time children's favorites now available together in a boxed set:

  • Goodnight Moon is a classic cherished by generations of readers and listeners as the perfect bedtime story, with poetic words and gentle, lulling illustrations.
  • The Runaway Bunny is Margaret Wise Brown and Clement Hurd's first collaboration, a magically comforting story about a bunny's imaginary game of hide–and–seek and the lovingly steadfast mother who finds him every time.

Clement Hurd redrew some of his original pictures for this edition of The Runaway Bunny, enhancing the timeless spirit of this classic book.

Review:

This tremendous trio of Margaret Wise Brown's tried-and-true board books is virtually guaranteed to delight babies and toddlers. The Runaway Bunny, illustrated by Clement Hurd, is a comforting testimony to a parent's unconditional love and protection: "'If you run away,' said his mother, 'I will run after you. For you are my little bunny.'" Goodnight Moon walks a child through a hypnotically soothing bedtime ritual of naming familiar objects in a room (and finding the little mouse that keeps popping up); and the melodic Big Red Barn, with illustrations by Felicia Bond, is a colorful foray into farm life: "By the big red barn / In the great green field, / There was a pink pig / Who was learning to squeal." In the end, the barnyard animals are all asleep, and if you're lucky, your favorite toddlers will be, too. A wonderful first-book collection.
