Good Night, Sleep Tight is a major children's poetry anthology collated by Ivan Jones and Mal Lewis Jones.[1] It contains 366 poems by world famous and lesser known poets, including some of the editors' own poems. There is one poem for each night of the year.[1] The book is divided into twelve sections with each month illustrated by a well-known illustrator. The idea of the book is for busy parents to read their children a poem every night - and to pick out special ones for birthdays, religious festivals and other significant events. The book is published by Scholastic and Scholastic Inc (USA) and has sold over a hundred thousand copies in hardback.

The book contains many major poems, including "I Met At Eve" by Walter de la Mare, "Will There Really Be a Morning" by Emily Dickinson, "Last Night I Dreamed of Chickens" by Jack Prelutsky, and "Escape at Bedtime" by Robert Louis Stevenson.
