Margaret Wise Brown wrote hundreds of books and stories during her life, but she is best known for Goodnight Moon and Runaway Bunny. Even though she died over 45 years ago, her books still sell very well. Margaret loved animals. Most of her books have animals as characters in the story. She liked to write books that had a rhythm to them. Sometimes she would put a hard word into the story or poem. She thought this made children think harder when they are reading. She wrote all the time. There are many scraps of paper where she quickly wrote down a story idea or a poem. She said she dreamed stories and then had to write them down in the morning before she forgot them. She tried to write the way children wanted to hear a story, which often isn't the same way an adult would tell a story. She also taught illustrators to draw the way a child saw things. One time she gave two puppies to someone who was going to draw a book with that kind of dog. The illustrator painted many pictures one day and then fell asleep. When he woke up, the papers he painted on were bare. The puppies had licked all the paint off the paper. Margaret died after surgery for a bursting appendix while in France. She had many friends who still miss her. They say she was a creative genius who made a room come to life with her excitement. Margaret saw herself as something else - a writer of songs and nonsense.

3.0 out of 5 stars 3 stars for the printing, not the story.
Reviewed in Canada 🇨🇦 on 14 January 2022
We have many Golden Books but this is the first one that is poor quality. The printing of the first half of the book has many blurry pages. Worse, though, is the cut of the cardboard cover. The bottom was so sharp that is gave me a paper cut when trying to hold the book open with one hand in order to read it ro my child. I don't know about you but that's just how I hold these small books. Normally these edges are nice and smooth. Not this time! I'm glad it was me that found this out the hard way.

The story is short with humorous pictures that provide some nice conversation prompts. Gives some decent examples how to behave and how not to behave. On the easier side for a beginning reader to read in their own, too. We've gotten it from the library before and my child liked it so much that I thought it was worth a purchase. I will wait to buy it again and hope we get a better copy/printing.
