"Goodnight Moon" by Margaret Wise Brown has delighted little readers for 50 years. Brown's lyrical text and illustrator Clement Hurd's "great green room" has become so iconic that many adults can still recite the passages from book from their own childhood. Harper Collins has sold 14 million copies of the book since its first publication in 1947. In recent years, illustrations from the book have been repurposed to create a matching game, counting cards, and puzzles.
Also by Ms. Brown: "The Noisy Book" and "The Big Red Barn."
