Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In the green suburbs,

tucked away in bed,

are two parents.

“Goodnight husband,

goodnight wife.”

And to all the familiar things in the rumpled bedroom—to the portrait of two rowdy kids, to the dog peeing on the rug, to the wrinkle cream and bloodpressure medication, to each and every dirty sock—the husband and wife say goodnight.

In this humorous parody of a childrens literature classic, familiar to generations of married couples, the gentle sarcasm and clever illustrations combine to make a perfect book for the end of every frustrating, exhausting, utterly priceless day.

Synopsis:

In the vein of bestselling parody Go the F*ck to Sleep comes Goodnight Husband, Goodnight Wife, a distinctly grown-up spin on the classic childrens bedtime story. Striking a balance between snarky and sweet, ribald and romantic, this fully illustrated new book weaves a tale of domestic discord—and, ultimately, a loving resolution.

Through his-and-hers observations, Goodnight Husband, Goodnight Wife skewers the not-so-appealing changes that marriage often triggers in a couple. Back hair, midlife crises, granny panties, man boobs . . . nothing is off limits!

Brothers Eric and Justin Stangel draw inspiration from their own experiences and put them through a funhouse mirror, reflecting both the heart and the humor in married life. In the process, they remind husbands and wives everywhere that no matter how irritated, exasperated, or exhausted they might feel, theyll always have bedtime to bring them back together.
