‘Goodnight Moon’ Author’s Poetry Published Posthumously

HarperFestival

'Goodnight Songs' came out this week.

Children’s book lovers are being treated to the debut of a new collection by an old favorite.

Goodnight Moon and Runaway Bunny author Margaret Wise Brown died at 42 in 1952, but she left behind what Publisher’s Weekly describes as a “treasure trove of unpublished manuscripts.” On Tuesday, Sterling Children’s Books released a collection of 12 of Brown’s unpublished children’s songs in a work titled Goodnight Songs.

Twelve children’s book illustrators contributed art for the book, which is sold with an accompanying CD.
