Publisher Comments:

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, it captures the familiar ? and unspoken ? tribulations of putting your little angel down for the night. Beautiful, subversive, and pants-wettingly funny, Go the F**k to Sleep is a book for parents new, old, and expectant. You probably should not play this for your children. A children's book for grown-ups I really did laugh out loud?hilarious ? David Byrne, musician, father of one Finally, someone tells it like it really is. This is no-guilt funny and a godsend ? ?Cristina Garc?a, author of The Lady Matador's Hotel, mother of one This is the most honest children's book ever written. F**king hilarious.? A.J. Jacobs, author of The Year of Living Biblically, father of three Go the F**k to Sleep is the secret anthem of tired parents everywhere.? Bliss Broyard, author of One Drop: My Father's Hidden Life, mother of two Captures the beautiful struggle of being a parent at its rawest point: bedtime.? Daniel Sinker, author of The F***ing Epic Twitter Quest of @MayorEmanuel, father of one

Review:

"'The windows are dark in the town, child, the whales huddled down in the deep. I'll read you one very last book if you swear, you'll go the f**k to sleep.' With those softly spoken words, unlikely bedtime narrator Samuel L. Jackson attempts to lull a little one to sleep with the assistance of charming incidental music. However, this child, like so many others, has different ideas. With an increasingly aggravated tone, Jackson becomes the voice of countless overtired parents the world over, allowing his inner monologue to come to life with outrageously hilarious results. 'Sure, fine, whatever! I'll bring you some milk, who the f**k cares! You're not gonna sleep.' Jackson captures the spirit of this adult storybook in a way no other narrator could.

I was a little apprehensive at the thought of reading what could turn out to be a profane book. Well, I need not have worried. Mansbach and Cortes have combined beautifully to create a hilarious gem. Anyone who is the father of a toddler or has had the experience of getting a toddler to sleep can relate to this book.

It is a really honest "tell it like it is book," and its beauty lies in the fact that with a little creativity one could read it to a toddler who will love it.

A great Christmas gift for a new parent or a parent who has tried it all and is tired out!
