Night Night, Groot by Brendan Deneen

Night night, Groot, it's time for bed. Time to rest your sleepy head . . .

But, wait! Baby Groot can't go to sleep yet! Rocket the Raccoon says he's not done yet! Even after a day filled with fun and adventure, Groot has to protect the galaxy once again! But, is this real or just a dream? Even if it is, at least all of his amazing friends came by to help him save the galaxy . . . there's Captain America, Thor, Hulk, She-Hulk, Dr. Strange, Black Widow, Hawkeye, Star-Lord, Gamora . . . Groot's superhero friends are all here! After saving the galaxy once again, the day is now done, and super friends say . . . night night, Groot! You've had a wonderful day.

Night Night, Groot is a classic for all Marvel superhero fans, no matter your age! Told in a soothing rhyme, author Brendan Deneen and illustrator Cale Atkinson bring to life a Guardians of the Galaxy favorite, Baby Groot, and his amazing adventures in space. Other favorite superheroes make an appearance, too, fighting the bad guys with their little—but mighty—tree friend. With fun pictures and a fast-paced story line, Night Night, Groot is a fabulous, superhero spin on Margaret Wise Brown's Goodnight Moon. No matter the time of day, Baby Groot and his superhero comrades will save the galaxy once again!
