Good night, Gorilla.
Good night, Elephant.

It’s bedtime at the zoo, and all the animals are going to sleep. Or are they? Who’s that short, furry guy with the key in his hand and the mischievous grin?

Good night, Giraffe.
Good night, Hyena.

Sneak along behind the zookeeper’s back, and see who gets the last laugh in this riotous good-night romp.

Listener Opinions

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Joan DeArtemis | 2/18/2014

    " This is one of my favorite children's books. I keep a copy at my desk in my home office. When I am up late working, and I am tired, discouraged, lonely, I'll read this again before I turn in for the night. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Audrey | 2/3/2014

    " Good memories,good memories. My little sister Claire LOVES this book. This book is so cute, but I don`t really read this book because I`m 8, but my sister is 3 and this is her favorite book. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Shauna | 2/3/2014

    " Every baby/toddler I know who has encountered this book loves it. I love it too, and the Scholastic/Weston Woods animated version on DVD is a lot of fun, too. It very gently adds just a little more punch to an already-wonderful story (the majority of which is told via the illustrations--no text really, beyond "Good Night..."). This is a classic -- a book you'll read over and over, and continue to enjoy along with your little ones. "

    " Cute book for pre-readers, very few words the pictures really tell the story. Good for making predictions and having a conversation, not sure it would work in a whole group setting though. "

    " A gorilla steals the zookeepers keys and the animals follow him home. This a favorite at 18 months! We find something new in the illustrations every time--The mouse, the balloons, and the things in the cages. "
