When the text of Goodnight Nanny-cam appeared online in the New Yorker’s “Shouts & Murmurs” column, it garnered 100,000 hits and more than 15,000 Facebook likes in a matter of days. Filled with sly references to BPA-free bottles, Baby Einstein DVDs, and toddler tutors, Jen Nessel and Lizzy Ratner’s send-up of the beloved children’s classic wittily skewers our modern culture of over-parenting. Parodies of Goodnight Moon are always popular, and Goodnight Nanny-cam is a gorgeously illustrated gift that’s guaranteed to have alpha parents everywhere laughing—and cringing—in recognition.


Praise for Goodnight Nannycam:

“If you’ve ever been sucked in by baby Mozart CDs, organic baby wipes, or high-contrast black-and-white decorations, you’ll recognize some of the features in this little monkey’s room. Is it so funny because it’s true? We have to confess, it is.”
