Publisher's Summary

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 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.

Parenthood summed up in under 5 mins

It is simply the way of things, I have no idea how long we have survived so long as a species- given that, as newborns and infants we willfully refuse to sleep and eat, slowly degrading the sanity and functionality of our primary care givers and guardians. This tragic little tale sums up the bewildering, enraging, exhausting paradox of trying to persuade a small human to sleep as you battle to remain conscious.

Never has the sound of a desperate parent trying to settle their child been so believable.
