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.


Praise for Go the F**k to Sleep:

The language? WTF! This hilarious, politically incorrect book is totally correct about the feelings of sleepless, brain-dead parents.

— Mem Fox  

A children's book for grown-ups! I really did laugh out loud--hilarious!

— David Byrne, father of one, musician, artist

This is the most honest children's book ever written. And it's f*cking hilarious.

— A.J. Jacobs, father of three, author of The Year of Living Biblically

I wish this book had been around during my daughter's overly protracted sleep rituals! Finally, someone tells it like it really is. This is no-guilt funny and a godsend!

— Cristina Garcia, mother of one, author of The Lady Matador's Hotel

Go the F**k to Sleep is the secret anthem of tired parents everywhere. Adam Mansbach's homage to the tropes of bedtime stories is pitch perfect, and Ricardo Cortes's stunning illustrations will keep grown-ups and kids alike returning to these pages again and again!

— Bliss Broyard, author of One Drop: My Father's Hidden Life
