I like the work of Liniers, but read this now because it won the 2018 Eisner Comic Industry Award for Best Publication for Early Readers (up to age 8) recently. It's a sweet and largely unremarkable story of a girl, her dog, and her floppy toy rabbit named Planet. (Right, I thought it was going to be an environmental story! Not!). It's one of these I-Fell-Asleep-and-the-Toys-Came-Alive stories, where after the girl goes to sleep Planet hangs with the dog, and a mouse, eating cookies together, an ...more

While a little girl sleeps, her favorite stuffed toy has a big adventure with the family dog and an enterprising mouse. Very cute story, laid out in graphic novel format for early readers.

Wonderful story about the life of toys after children go to bed - the pictures are magical and will bring back memories of your favorite stuffed animal toy.

Guys! I read a TOON book and didn't hate it!

In fact, I quite liked this one!

Mark this day down on the calendar.
Good Night, Planet is a sweet beginning reader in a graphic novel format, but nothing really special.

The story, characters, dialogue are all OK. For example, a stuffed toy named Planet sounds kind of preachy to me. A conversation between a mouse and Planet is a good case in point:
"Planet! That's a big name for such a small animal."
"Every animal, big or small, is a whole universe."

The artwork is also OK. Personally, I'm not a fan of red human noses. However, animals are drawn very realistically

Beautiful illustrations. This is a level 2 easy reader. It starts off wordless, gets into the story and then ends wordless so there isn't a lot of text. About a nighttime adventure of a little girl's stuffed animal, Planet. A sweet story that would also make a good bedtime story for non-readers.

Stunning, early reader graphic novel. I hope Liniers is more heavily promoted in the U.S. I fell in love with him when I first discovered Written and Drawn by Henrietta. I see a Caldecott in the future for Liniers now that he is a Vermont resident. He is that good. Check him out!

A little girl goes to sleep with her favorite stuffed animal, Planet, at her side. Once she is sleeping, Planet gets out of bed and starts his own adventures. They involve visiting with the dog, eating some cookies together, climbing a tree and seeing the full moon. Getting down from the tree is an adventure in itself and takes a bit of a run and a leap. They befriend a mouse along the way, share some more cookies together and then return to bed. Based on Liniers’ own daughter’s stuffed animal a ...more

Planet is the little girl's bunny! He is a wonderful playmate -- very agreeable to any adventures that await. See what the bunny does at bedtime! This comic book will be read over and over again and that's a guarantee! The illustrations are in comic format, some strips with words and others are wordless! There will be a lot to talk about when reading this story!
I loved, loved, loved this sweet graphic novel!!! The pictures are gorgeous, and the story is soooooo sweet! It would be a really nice bedtime story for a younger child, but I think all ages would enjoy this book.

This young reader is divided into panels similar to a comic book; and while there is easy reading text, there are also several wordless panels.

WHAT a sweet comic. A little girl's deer stuffie comes awake at night, in pursuit of cookies and friends.

A minimally wordy slim graphic novel, as a girl plays with her stuffed animal, "Planeta". Then when she falls asleep, Planeta comes to life and has adventures with the dog and a little mouse. A dark palette using soy based inks for a gentle story reminiscent of the old Raggedy Ann. The author is from Argentina but currently lives in Vermont.

Pretty charming. It's a simple story, but one that children should relate to, and they should enjoy the animal characters.

It is actually more in comic book form than picture book, which can be good for introducing children to that format.

Short book for small children about a stuffed toy animal named Planet who goes out at night and teams up with a mouse and a dog. Lovely art and a good story. “Every animal, big or small, is a whole universe.” Grade: A-

This graphic novel starts out wordless, allowing the reader to devise their own story from the beautiful illustrations. While the novel begins and ends without text, there is only a little bit of text in the middle, making it a really nice graphic novel for young readers. The story begins with a little girl having fun playing outside with her beloved stuffed rabbit. It is clear through the illustrations how much her toy means to her. The stuffed animal actually comes to life at night, and its ad ...more

Ever wonder what your stuffies do when you go to sleep? After adventuring all day with her child, Planet goes on a nighttime adventure with her friend Elliot, the family dog, and a mouse to find the biggest cookie in the world. Adorable, beautifully illustrated. Recommended for pre-K to 2nd grade
So good! Some of Liniers' work is too creepy (like What There Is Before There Is Anything There, but his Toon books are just perfect. This story is based on his youngest daughter, their doggo, and her stuffed deer named Planet. Inanimate-objects-come-alive is pretty well-trodden territory, but when done well it's not really a trope I tire of. I like Liniers' pen and watercolor illustrations, and his style of drawing people vs. the environment made for a fun mix of cartoonishness and realism.

A little girl has a busy day playing with her stuffed bunny Planet. When she goes to sleep, Planet has adventures of his own, with the dog Elliot and a mysterious mouse named Bradley. Adorable illustrations show the little girl's world, with few words, but with expertly arranges cels, from one to nine a page. Liniers' charming ink and watercolor drawings draw the reader in to this nighttime drama and the simple text should be pleasing to new readers.

So simple and so perfect. A precious stuffed animal named Planet snarfs cookies with the dog while its child sleeps. A misguided mouse tries to lead them to a bigger cookie, but inevitably enjoys the usual fare with Planet & Co.
