Goodnight Moon 

Margaret Wise Brown, the author of Goodnight Moon and more than 100 other children's books, would have been 95 today. If she hadn't died in 1952.

How many millions of parents have memorized Goodnight Moon, and reluctantly caved when their toddler demanded "Moon!" for the umpty-umpth time?

Of course, many people do not appreciate the best line of the book, which must be yelled and accompanied by a fist-pumping salute: "Good night mush!"

I have always liked the line "Goodnight nobody," but then again I also liked Waiting for Godot.
