“Thank You and Good Night” on cover of SLJ’s Best of 2015

Books & Art

Thank You and Good Night, Patrick’s highly-acclaimed picture book, graces the cover of the School Library Journal’s “Best Books of 2015” issue: “From adult books for teens, books by and about Latinos, and graphic novels, to audiobooks, and DVDs.” Just add it to the growing list of accolades this book has been garnering.

An interior banner also features a smaller illustration from the book of a moon, with characters Clement, Alan Alexander, and Jean atop it. The review mentions “The sweetly expressive and delightful pen-and-ink and watercolor artwork have the look and feel of classic picture books, to which McDonnell cleverly pays homage.” and that “This delightful bedtime story extols the virtues of friendship and of gratitude for simple pleasures.” Congratulations to Patrick on this honor!
