Review! Night Night, Groot by Brendan Deneen

Night Night, Groot
Written by Brendan Deneen
Illustrated by Cale Atkinson
32 pages – ages 4+
Published by Marvel Press on April 4, 2017

Synopsis from Publisher- “It’s been a long day for baby Groot and he’s ready to be tucked in for bed. Just as his eyes start to close, Rocket Raccoon bursts onto the scene! Groot can’t go to sleep yet, there’s a whole galaxy that needs to be defended and they must work together to save the day! Then maybe, just maybe, Groot will finally get the rest he deserves! Each spread includes a tiny Ant-Man, let’s see if you can find him…”

What I Thought- This was a neat book… okay – I am a superhero geek and I was really excited to get this book. I am not sure if it is meant for kids or their parents – because it is great for both! The illustrations are really cute but there are so many Marvel superheros making cameo appearances – parents will love the fun of identifying them. They have a great feeling to them –

Searching for the tiny Ant-Man in each illustration was fun and challenging at times. The story is told in a sing-song rhyme that is pleasing to read. The story is cute as Groot reflects over what he did during the day, saving the galaxy with his friends. With the popularity of the Guardians of the Galaxy, I am sure kids will love to read about Baby Groot going to bed. I can see this one being read over and over again!

I give this book five out of five bookworms!

  1. This looks cute. Groot is my favorite character!

    • It is, and Groot is awesome! (although I’m not quite sure what I think about a children’s PB about characters in a PG-13 movie…)

      • That’s a good point, Erik. I think quite a few kids are watching scary and violent movies at a very young age. My son didn’t get to watch PG-13 until he was 12. So we even broke the movie watching guidelines, didn’t we?

      • I think it is important to remember they are guidelines – it isn’t set rules. Most of it depends on a kid’s maturity level – for some kids, that may mean being 12. However, I don’t think any 4-year-old should watch a PG-13 movie. Which makes this book’s existence a curiosity to me. :/

  2. Sounds SUPER exciting. (See what I did there?) I think searching for AntMan is fun. Mom won’t let me do it outside, though. #buzzkill

    Love and licks,

  3. Love your post about finding Ant-man. Reminds me of the Waldo books my daughter loved.
