Clever, that

Isegoria has more Science Fiction For Children.  It's been quite a long while since #1 Son or #2 Son was interested in Goodnight Moon, and it was a sad day when I realized that I could no longer recite it from memory.

But this brings some of those memories back.  And the color choice here gives the obvious opening line: In the great green dunes, there was a stillsuit and a picture of Muad'Dibb riding a worm ...

Feel free to leave more lines in the comments, and we'll see if collectively we can do the book.

"Nighty night, Fremen, in his stinky stillsuit..."

(never read Goodnight Moon as a child but I did have my perception ruined by Animaniacs' parody of same...)

The original text is:

Goodnight Moon:
...Goodnight room
Goodnight moon
Good night cow jumping over the moon
Goodnight light
And the red balloon
Goodnight bears
Goodnight chairs
Goodnight kittens
And goodnight mittens
Goodnight clocks
And goodnight socks
Goodnight little house
And goodnight mouse
Goodnight comb
And goodnight brush
Goodnight nobody
Goodnight mush
And goodnight to the old lady
whispering "hush"
Goodnight stars
Goodnight air
Goodnight noises everywhere


Goodnight Dune
Goodnight moons
Goodnight starships that go zoom
Goodnight worms
and goodnight Paul
Goodnight Duncan, Duke, and all
Goodnight robes
Goodnight wadi
Goodnight witches
Goodnight fishes
and goodnight dishes
Goodnight Fremen
Goodnight spice
Goodnight armies
Goodnight Baron from afar
And goodnight Truthsayer
whispering Gom-jabbar
Goodnight stars
Goodnight air
Goodnight noises everywhere
