The adults-only picture book Go the F**k to Sleep became an international phenomenon. At last here is the version you can safely read to your kids and have them happily snuggled down and sleeping by the end of the book! Seriously, Just Go to Sleep has all the humour and exasperation of the original. With its snoozing kittens and sleepy tigers it's a hilarious parody of a children's bedtime rhyme. It lets children relish in their own mischievousness and recognise their own tactics, and allows kids and parents to laugh with each other about the tricky business of going to sleep.
Adam Mansbach's novels include The End of the Jews, winner of the California Book Award, and the best-selling Angry Black White Boy. Ricardo Cortes has illustrated books about marijuana, electricity, the Jamaican bobsled team and Chinese food.
