Night Night, Groot by Brendan Deneen - ESSENTIAL

Deneen, Brendan Night Night, Groot, illustrated by Cale Atkinson. PICTURE BOOK. Marvel Press (Disney), 2017. $12.99. 

Groot is gearing up for bed after a long day of guarding the galaxy when his friend, Rocket, shows up. Dashing off on one last adventure, Groot battles bad guys alongside other favorite heroes from the Marvel universe--Captain American, the Hulk, Dr. Strange and more. At the end we wonder if perhaps it was all just a dream, but it doesn't really matter, does it? 

This is a super fun picture book for fans of the Marvel Superhero universe. The well loved Groot is at the heart of the story, but nearly every other hero we know from the Marvel movies makes an appearance. The story is written in rhyme and the illustrations are unique, engaging, and fun. Its a different take on a bedtime story, but will likely be very popular among superhero fans.
