I knew that C.S. Lewis and I had more in common than our Christianity when he said, "You can never get a cup of tea large enough or a book long enough to suit me." Welcome to a celebration of faith, tea, and the written word. I'm always engaged in a book, and whether it's one I'm reading or one of the inspirational historical romances I write, there's always a cup of tea close by. Join me in a cup as we chat about faith, our favorite books and the exciting places our reading and writing adventures take us.

Goodnight Mr. Darcy

This goes under the Why Didn't I Think of This category:
Goodnight Mr. Darcy

I love Goodnight Moon. I love Pride & Prejudice. This looks like a fabulous mash-up.

Here's the blurb:

The adored children’s classic Goodnight Moon gets a classic lit makeover in this charming parody of Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice novel. All of Austen’s much-loved characters are at the Netherfield Ball. In the great ballroom, there was a country dance, and a well-played tune, and Elizabeth Bennett; and Mr. Darcy surprised, by a pair of fine eyes . . . And don’t forget Jane with a blush and Mr. Bingley turned to mush, and a gossiping mother and father saying hush. Parents and toddlers alike will enjoy this new take on Austen’s timeless work à la Goodnight Moon.

I'll have to place this on my Christmas list; it will be a nice addition to my BabyLit collection!

What about you? Do you enjoy "kid versions" of adult books?
