"The New York Times bestselling author of Blackberry Winter imagines the inspiration for Goodnight Moon Goodnight Moon is an adored childhood classic, but its real origins are lost to history. In Goodnight June, Sarah Jio offers a suspenseful and heartfelt take on how the "great green room" might have come to be.

Unexpectedly, she is called to settle her great-aunt Ruby's estate and determine the fate of Bluebird Books, the children's bookstore Ruby founded in the 1940s. Amidst the store's papers, June stumbles upon letters between her great-aunt and the late Margaret Wise Brown-and steps into the pages of American literature. "-- Provided by publisher.

Not bad, but the main character is so prickly and lacking social skills, one wonders why she gets the great guy. Despite the author being a Seattlite, she doesn't seem to know daffodils are mostly done by tulip time and Winslow no longer exists.(Changed it's name to Bainbridge.) I listened to the audio book and skipped one whole CD, no reason but like the story Julia and Julia, the past is way more interesting than the present.
Thank goodness she didn't have any names like Puyallup because the storyteller kept mispronouncing Tevas and Greenlake. If you're from here, it's Green' Lake-almost swallowing the Lake. IT IS NOT Green Lake' with emphasis on the Lake. That's like the bus voice that also is clearly something imported from somewhere else. Darn disconcerting if you ask me.
