MATERIALS: Hardcover
When kids don’t sleep, neither do Mom and Dad. But if they can’t even get 40 winks, at least they can experience some humor. Go The F**k to Sleep is a great gift 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 F**k 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.

"A children's book for grown-ups! I really did laugh out loud--hilarious!" --David Byrne, musician, father of one

"This is the most honest children's book ever written. And it's f*cking hilarious." --A.J. Jacobs, author of The Year of Living Biblically, father of three
