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, 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 Cortés, 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.
'The language? WTF! This hilarious, politically incorrect book is totally correct about the feelings of sleepless, brain-dead parents.' Mem Fox
"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. An Akashic Books hardcover.
Very entertaining and clever, but selling as 32 pages, got 21. Feeling ripped off.
That's it ...... Disappointing
