Review

If you've had any part in helping to raise a small child, or if you plan to, you need to read this hilarious book about the follies of actually putting that child to bed. Adam Mansbach perfectly captures the sleep-deprived anger and frustration inherent in trying to convince a toddler to go to sleep and stay asleep, while Ricardo Cortes's illustrations riff off of all the sometimes ludicrous illustrations found in the children's books you might read to your child at bedtime. What makes Go the F**k to Sleep even better is its audiobook version read by the perfect voice actor for the job: Samuel L. Jackson.

Just be wary of letting your small bibliophiles see the book; editing the verse for an insistent child's ears is a rather awkward exercise.
