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.

A children's book for grown-ups! I really did laugh out loud - hilarious! - David Byrne, musician, father of one

It subverts accepted notions of what is meant by 'good' parenting ... a clever conceit, executed with panache - The Lady

“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

“This is a naughty picture book for parents”

If you have children or have ever looked after someone’s young children of a night-time then this book will be perfect for you. I just want to make it clear before I carry on my review that this book is for adults... More
