Biografía breve
Margaret Wise Brown wrote hundreds of books and stories before she died at the age of 42 after surgery for a burst appendix. She published under her own name as well as under several pen names including Timothy Hay, Golden MacDonald, Juniper Sage, and Kaintuck Brown. According to a Web site dedicated to her, before Margaret began writing books for children, fairytales and fables dominated the world of illustrated stories. But Margaret, or Brownie, as her friends called her, wrote with the then "new" idea that children would rather read about their own lives instead. Many of her books are considered classics of the genre.

"Buenas noches, luna" narra el ritual de la despedida antes de dormir. El conejito protagonista -con el pijama puesto y ya metido en su cama- desea “buenas noches” a todos y cada uno de los personajes y objetos de su habitación, hasta que se apaga la luz y se queda dormido.

Una historia sencilla y cotidiana, con un texto breve y rimado. La autora enumera y describe lo que vemos en la habitación: los juguetes, los cuadros y otros elementos cotidianos; y también los que observamos en el exterior, mirando por la ventana: la luna y las estrellas.

El ilustrador juega con el color y con los planos. Utiliza el verde y el anaranjado en la representación general de la habitación; y el blanco y negro para enfocar los detalles concretos. Con este juego de imágenes invita a los más pequeños a nombrar y reconocer objetos cotidianos (peine, cepillo, papilla, guantes, osos, estrellas…) A buscar e identificar elementos que se mueven a medida que avanza la historia (la luna, un ratón o unos gatos); y a fijarse cómo la habitación va oscureciéndose lentamente.

Buenas noches, luna es clásico de la literatura infantil inglesa, publicado por primera vez en 1947, que prevalece en el tiempo y está considerado uno de los 100 libros más vendidos de la historia, con más de 16 millones de ejemplares. Como curiosidad, destacar que la Biblioteca Pública de Nueva York se negó a comprarlo por considerarlo sentimental y, hasta 1973, no realizó el primer pedido de esta obra debido a las recomendaciones de sus propios lectores.
