Publisher Description

Go the Fk 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 Fk 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.

Author Biography

Adam Mansbach's novels include The End of the Jews (winner of the California Book Award), Angry Black White Boy, Rage is Back and The Dead Run. His fiction and essays have appeared in the New York Times Book Review, the Believer, Granta, the Los Angeles Times and many other publications. Mansbach's 2011 picture book Go the F**k to Sleep was an international bestseller and one of the most talked-about books of the decade. A viral sensation, it has been published in forty languages, and is forthcoming as a feature film from Fox 2000.

Review

'The language? WTF! This hilarious, politically incorrect book is totally correct about the feelings of sleepless, brain-dead parents.' -- Mem Fox 'Clever, funny and cathartic, parents and babysitters alike will love it.' 4 stars Big Issue 'Filled with the same humour and exasperation as the first, [Seriously, Just Go to Sleep] will have you snickering.' Practical Parenting 'There might be some parents who don't relate to this book. But not many.' -- Noni Hazlehurst '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 '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
