A laugh-out-loud, adults-only bedtime story for parents familiar with the age-old struggle of putting their kids to bed "Hell no, you can't go to the bathroom. You know where you can go? The f**k to sleep." Go the Fuck 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.… (more)

An audiobook of absolute hilarity for any parent of any age. Read by Samuel L. Jackson, a perfect pick to read this plead to the child of the story. An ask, no a plead for the little one to sleep, this irreverent and way too honest and on point book is for not just parents, but anyone who enjoys SLJ, humor, or has any experience with kids...they'll get it.

Are our enlightened, engaged, sensitive parenting practices driving a certain segment of the population insane? Is the nice, liberal father who has just this Saturday carted his kids to soccer practice, play dates, piano lessons, made sunflower-butter sandwiches, and read Goodnight Moon three times seething with quiet desperation? The surprise ascendance of Adam Mansbach and Ricardo Cortés' Go the F**k to Sleep on all sorts of best-seller lists eloquently answers that question.

Look: I have no problem with this book. It's a funny little lark. But it's simply not worth all this attention...

Dedication
for Vivien, without whom none of this would be possible.
First words
The cats nestle close to their kittens,
The lambs have laid down with the sheep.
You're cozy and warm in your bed, my dear.
Please go the fuck to sleep.
