Good Night, Baboon! stars one very cheeky baby baboon who’s just too jazzed to slumber as he bounces through a countdown of sleepy animals brushing their teeth, reading bedtime stories, until finally:

2 lazy llamas,
all tucked in snug.
Now look who’s ready for . . .
1 big hug!

With its vibrant art and cheerful rhyming text, plus a countdown from one to ten, the book is a joy for grown-ups and children to read aloud together.

Created by Eunice Moyle and Sabrina Moyle, the sister team behind the award-winning design studio Hello!Lucky, Good Night, Baboon! features the bright and appealing style that has made their previous children’s books bestsellers and their stationery and other products so popular across all ages.

GOOD NIGHT, BABOON! is a cute and colorful countdown book of animals getting ready for bed- all except one! The book counts down from 10 to 1, using different animals on each page- except the one baby baboon who is refusing to get ready for bed. The story ends with the baby baboon settling down for one big hug.

What I loved: The illustrations are super-bright and colorful with plenty of fun animals to count. Toddlers will get a kick out of counting the animals and the funny things the baby baboon is doing. The text is also rhyming and easy for parents to read, which adds some extra fun to the story.

What left me wanting more: As a very small point, baby baboon has some bad habits (such as brushing his bum with a toothbrush when the dapper dinos are brushing their gums) that would not be great for children who like to mimic.

Final verdict: Colorful and full of rhyming fun, GOOD NIGHT, BABOON! is a silly book that encourages counting. Would recommend for children looking for a funny read.
