Goodnight Moon + Dune = Geek Bedtime Story

Dune is a science fiction novel written by Frank Herbert, published in 1965. It is frequently cited as the world's best-selling science fiction novel. Frank Herbert wrote five sequels to the novel Dune: Dune Messiah, Children of Dune, God Emperor of Dune, Heretics of Dune, and Chapterhouse: Dune. 

Goodnight Moon is an American children's book written by Margaret Wise Brown and illustrated by Clement Hurd. It was first published in 1947, and is a highly acclaimed example of a bedtime story. It is about a child saying goodnight to everything around: "Goodnight room. Goodnight moon. Goodnight cow jumping over the moon. Goodnight light, and the red balloon..."  

According to Julia Yu, "Goodnight Dune was written and illustrated after I saw this article for Five Sci-Fi Children's Books on College Humor, linked from a Reddit post which asked for a more fleshed out version of the book. While the original parody art was amazing I decided to stick closer to the original Goodnight Moon structure, using some stylistic elements from the David Lynch movie version of Dune."
