We’ve all read Margaret Wise Brown’s Good Night Moon. What if the child were on Mars, where there are two moons? What if that child lived in a gray inflatable habitat? What if that child could watch the Mars rover jump over a dune? And what if that child ate rehydrated food and went in and out of the habitat through an airlock? And had a tiny pet tardigrade? A child on Mars will see many different sights and have many different adventures than the Earth-dwelling child in the original. But she or he will still have to go to bed. And will still have familiar things to say good-night to. Good Night Phobos, Good Night Deimos, written by Tim Baird and illustrated by Jamie Noble Frier, gives a glimpse into this future child’s life.
Tim Baird clearly loved the original Good Night Moon. He also loves Mars and the planet’s two moons. This clever retelling is both a bedtime story and an invitation to today’s Earth-bound children to visit Mars and see Phobos and Deimos. Good Night Phobos, Good Night Deimos is sweet and funny. I hope the author is wrong about one thing – I hope no future scientists go to Mars without learning the metric system. Jamie Noble Frier’s illustrations of round windows and the tiny tardigrade help this future home on Mars feel more real. Recommended for everyone who thinks about going to Mars and who loves Good Night Moon.
