“Goodnight Bob,” the newest book from Waldoboro husband-and-wife team Ann and John Hassett, is one of those one-of-a-kind children’s books about bedtime – like Anna Dewdney’s “Llama Llama Red Pajama” and Peggy Rathman’s “Good Night, Gorilla” – that has the word “classic” written all over it. Released in September by Illinois-based children’s book publisher Albert Whitman & Co., “Goodnight Bob” tells the story – in simple language and endearing, colorful pictures – of a little boy named Bob who repeatedly shines his flashlight on all the eyes he sees in the night as he tries to fall asleep. It is both a universally familiar story and one with a wonderful twist near the end of the book (no spoiler here).
