Goodnight iPad..children’s book updated for Post PC age

Goodnight iPad is a parody of the popular children bedtime story Goodnight Moon by Margaret Wise Brown illustrated by Clement Hurd which was first published in 1947. Goodnight iPad written by children’s author David Milgrim under the pseudonym “Ann Droyd“. His updated updated story shows a very different homelife 50 years later, with mobile devices, social networks, and non-stop streaming media. Even the cat is wearing headphones.

In the original the bunny-child says good night to all the things in and around his house, while effectively postponing going to sleep. The Post PC version has all the household gadgets talking.

It is a fun book to read and some kids might enjoy it as a bed time story. Hardcover versions of Goodnight iPad are available from Amazon, Barnes & Noble in the US and Chapters/Indigo in Canada. It is also available from Barnes & Noble as a Nook Book Enhanced. I expect it will turn up at Kindle and Kobo shortly for their new Tablet readers.
