Go the Fuck 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.This book is hilarious. It's written like a children's bedtime story, but it's for us parents that know all too well what it's like to beg our children to go the fuck to sleep. (Maybe not out loud.)
With illustrations by Ricardo Cortes, Go the Fuck 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.
As if the print book isn't hilarious enough, Samuel L. Jackson did an awesome job narrating the audiobook version.
Go the F**k to Sleep is going to be a standard addition to my baby shower gifts from now on.
