The #1 New York Times Bestseller: “A hilarious take on that age-old problem: getting the beloved child to go to sleep” (NPR).
“Hell no, you can’t go to the bathroom. You know where you can go? The f**k to sleep.”
Go the F**k to Sleep is a 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.
Read by a host of celebrities, from Samuel L. Jackson to Jennifer Garner, this subversively funny bestselling storybook will not actually put your kids to sleep, but it will leave you laughing so hard you won’t care.
"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.
