Goodnight June by Sarah Jio

Goodnight Moon is an American classic, holding a special place on the bookshelves of infants and toddlers all across the country. In Goodnight June Jio takes us on a heartfelt fictional  journey of  discovery as we find out just what was the  inspiration for Margaret Wise Brown’s “great green room.”

Set in Seattle, the novel focuses on the relationship of Margret Wise Brown and the aunt of the main character June Anderson, a woman named Ruby who owns Bluebird Books. When Ruby dies she leaves the bookstore to June and the tale begins to unravel. Fun read with good books about books and Seattle juice.
