New Bedtime Storybook ‘Go the F**k to Sleep!’

If you’re a parent, you understand the aggravating time that bedtime can be.  Parents across the world would like to administer a unified smackdown around this time, but they try to keep it cool and accommodate their children as much as possible.  But, in showing this valiant level of patience, oftentimes, the parent is struggling with an internal turmoil that could be best articulated by saying, “Go the F**k to Sleep!”  Luckily, someone out there has meticulously written a book that helps the parent and the child with their nighttime misery.

Adam Mansbach, 34, an award-winning author, got the idea to write the book after posting his bedtime drama with his daughter on Facebook.  This morning, he told the Today show’s Matt Lauer, it’s his hope that parents will be careful where they lay the book down though.  The title, “Go the F**k to Sleep” is not the only place where the “F” bomb is dropped.  Throughout the book’s passages, the “F” bomb can be found at the end of most of the poetic paragraphs on each page.  For instance:

“All the kids from day care are in dreamland, the froggy has made his last leap. Hell no! You can’t go to the bathroom. You know where you can go? The fuck to sleep.”

The book has been moved up to a Father’s Day launch, but has already garnered more than 100,000 copies in per-orders. It’s obviously a book that is mainly for adults, but you can use creative license while reading it at night and read an “abridged” version of your own.
