At the end of each story, the prince rides off on his fair white steed. The princess polishes her tiara. The hero puts his or her trophy on the mantle. But what about the bad guys, huh? Where does the evil witch or the Big Bad Wolf go at the end of a long, unsuccessful day? Baddies are people too, you see, and in their evenings off, they need a relaxing place to call home.
Good Night, Baddies by Deborah Underwood and Juli Kangas is one of my new favorites. The story is written in bouncy, funny rhymes and the illustrations by Juli Kangas show where baddies like the giant from the beanstalk and the troll under the billy goats' bridge call home. All of the bad guys from all of your favorite fairy tales live together in a castle where they eat dinner together, talk about their work days, and read books by the fire.
This is such a cute story! We loved all of the pictures of bad guys in their pajamas and bunny slippers. recommended age: 3-6
