Goodnight, Batcave! by Dave Croatto, illustrated by Tom Richmond

If you're like me, part of your childhood memories of bedtime involve the classic Goodnight, Moon.  Mad Magazine's Dave Croatto and illustrator Tom Richmond have given that classic the superhero treatment in Goodnight, Batcave!  Poor Batman just wants to relax and go to bed, when his lair is invaded by a team of his nemeses.  They wreck his night, they wreck his cave, but he wrecks them in the end.
Goodnight, Batcave! is full of short, clever rhymes in the style of Goodnight, Moon.  Kids who love Batman will be delighted to see him take care of the Joker, the Riddler, Harley Quinn, and other villains from the world of Batman.  Finally, he can get a good night's sleep, with all the bad guys in jail.  And faithful Alfred is there to clean up the mess.  Good night, dear Alfred. . . . Goodnight heroes everywhere.
