Go the Fuck to Sleep Summary

Go the Fuck to Sleep by Adam Mansbach

Go the Fuck 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 off to dreamland. Profane, affectionate and refreshingly honest, it captures the familiar and unspoken tribulations of putting your child to bed for the night. Colourfully illustrated and hilariously funny, this is a breath of fresh air for parents new, old and expectant.* *(You probably shouldn't read this to your children.)

It subverts accepted notions of what is meant by 'good' parenting ... a clever conceit, executed with panache * * The Lady * *
Beautifully illustrated... a bonding experience for exhausted parents for generations to come * * Belfast Telegraph Evening * *
