Julia Yu, a developer here at Newsweek/Daily Beast, created this AMAZING sci-fi children’s book inspired by a College Humor post, a Reddit thread, the movie Dune, and Goodnight Moon.
She writes:

Goodnight Dune was written and illustrated after I saw this article for Five Sci-Fi Children’s Books on College Humor, linked from a Reddit post which asked for a more fleshed out version of the book. While the original parody art was amazing I decided to stick closer to the original Goodnight Moon art style, using some stylistic elements from the David Lynch movie version of Dune.

Go check it.
