This is not a a story about ecological armageddon.

Good Night, Planet (Toon Level Two) by Liniers. Toon Books, 2017. 9781943145201. 32pp.

When Toon’s Easy-To-Read Comics are good, they’re really good. This is one of my favorites. It’s going to be my go-to gift for early readers for the next few holiday seasons.

After an active day playing outside, a little girl tells her stuffed animal, Planet, good night and goes to sleep. Planet gets up, gives the sleeping girl a kiss, and goes off to have his own nighttime adventure with the family dog and a mouse who gets Planet to climb a tree and reach for the moon. Many cookies are eaten by all before Planet returns to bed and the girl wakes up. It’s sweet, fun, and perfectly executed.
