Description

Go the F**k to Sleep is a bedtime book for parents who live in the real world, where a few snoozing kitties and cutesy rhymes don't always send a toddler sailing blissfully off to dreamland. Profane, affectionate, and radically honest, California Book Award-winning author Adam Mansbach's verses perfectly capture the familiar - and unspoken - tribulations of putting your little angel down for the night. In the process, they open up a conversation about parenting, granting us permission to admit our frustrations, and laugh at their absurdity. With illustrations by Ricardo Cortes, Go the F**k to Sleep is beautiful, subversive and pants-wettingly funny - a book for parents new, old and expectant. You probably should not read it to your children.

Review quote

`The books has been described as the most honest children's book ever, and I couldn't agree more...being able to laugh, instead of cry, through those long waking nights can only be a healthy thing.' * Daily Telegraph * 'Anyone who has ever struggled to put a child to bed will find solace in this "children's book for parents"...Order it now.' * Canberra Times * 'There might be some parents who don't relate to this book. But not many.' -- Noni Hazlehurst `Filled with the same humour and exasperation as the first, [Seriously, Just Go to Sleep] will have you snickering.' * Practical Parenting * `Clever, funny and cathartic, parents and babysitters alike will love it.' 4 stars * Big Issue * 'The language? WTF! This hilarious, politically incorrect book is totally correct about the feelings of sleepless, brain-dead parents.' -- Mem Fox
