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 should probably not read this to your children.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Total genius -- Jonathan Lethem, author of MOTHERLESS BROOKLYN, father of two
Beautiful, brilliant, funny as fuck. A new Contented Little Baby Book for the discontented parent -- Helen Walsh, author of GO TO SLEEP, mother of one
This is the most honest children's book ever written. And it's f*cking hilarious -- A.J. Jacobs, author of THE YEAR OF LIVING BIBLICALLY, father of three
An instantly recognisable and timeless theme tune for bleary-eyed parents everywhere - a hymn to the horrors of bedtime. Beautifully crafted, rhythmical, affectionate, profane and searingly honest, it is very funny. -- Alex Frean * * Times * *
A gleeful howl of blasphemy ... for the exhausted parent, nudged to the brink of sanity by lack of sleep, GTFTS is more than a reason to snigger - it's a gesture of compassion. -- Benjamin Secher * * Daily Telegraph * *
Bedtime stories will never be the same again -- Viv Groskop * * The Guardian * *
A children's book for grown-ups! I really did laugh out loud - hilarious! -- David Byrne, musician, father of one
The secret anthem of tired parents everywhere -- Bliss Boyard, author of ONE DROP: MY FATHER'S HIDDEN LIFE, mother of two
Hilariously funny, it gets the tone bang on - and it's comforting to know bedtime is a universally fraught experience. * * News of the World * *
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 * *
Finally, someone tells it like it really is. This is no-guilt funny and a godsend! -- Cristina Garcia, author of THE LADY MATADOR'S HOTEL, mother of one

“Now this is a proper parenting book...”

I absolutely loved this book and I'll be honest I would happily read it to my kids if I had any (granted there is a reason I should not be a parent...) and given the stories my parents have told me about bedtime... More

“Horrendously misjudged. Avoid.”

From the title you might expect a twistedly humourous book about the difficulties new parents face. It's what I expected when I pre-ordered it as a gift for my wife around the time our daughter turned 6 months... More
