Read Review
“Nothing has driven home a certain truth about my generation, which is approaching the apex of its childbearing years, quite like this.”
The New Yorker

“A parenting zeitgeist”
Washington Post

“A hilarious take on that age-old problem: getting the beloved child to go to sleep.”
–National Public Radio

“A new Bible for weary parents”
New York Times

“Resonates powerfully with almost everyone”
Boston Globe

Go the F*** to Sleep challenges stereotypes, opens up prototypes, and acknowledges that shared sense of failure that comes to all parents who weary of ever getting their darling(s) to sleep and briefly resuming the illusion of a life of their own.”
Midwest Book Review

Go the F*** 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 blissfully off to dreamland. Profane, affectionate, and radically honest, California Book Award-winning author Adam Mansbach’s verses perfectly capture the familiar–and unspoken–tribulations of putting your little angel down for the night. In the process, they open up a conversation about parenting, granting us permission to admit our frustrations, and laugh at their absurdity.

With illustrations by Ricardo Cortes, Go the F*** to Sleep is beautiful, subversive, and pants-wettingly funny–a book for parents new, old, and expectant. You probably should not read it to your children.

Seriously, Just Go to Sleep, a children’s book inspired by Go the F*** to Sleep and appropriate for kids of all ages, is forthcoming from Akashic Books in April 2012 and available NOW for pre-order.

Read Review
“Now there’s a version, complete with more of the gorgeous, yet weirdly subversive illustrations. The best part? It’s still funny. The rhythms, the plodding rhymes, the illustrations, the clever play on the overused trope of the world at bedtime — they all work together to take Seriously, Just Go to Sleep beyond parody and into the realm where good children’s books belong: things that parents, and children, can honestly come to from different places and enjoy together. I can imagine reading Seriously, Go to Sleep nightly, and even to the point where you’re begging the child to choose something else (the ultimate compliment for a picture book) and yet still finding something to enjoy. It captures a different ‘zeitgeist’ of modern parenting.”
New York Times

“From the team that touched off the irreverent humor trend Go the F**k to Sleep, author Adam Mansbach and illustrator Ricardo Cortes, comes a new kid-friendly version of their instant comic classic. Seriously, Just Go to Sleep brings children in on the joke, helping them understand their own tactics and why their parents just want them to go . . . to sleep.”
Publishers Weekly

Critical success for the original Go the F*** to Sleep, a #1 best seller at: New York Times, Amazon.com, Wall Street Journal, Publishers Weekly, and many more!

Seriously, Just Go to Sleep is the G-rated, traditional-sized, children’s version of the book every parent has been talking about. Go the F*** to Sleep, the picture book for adults, became a cultural sensation by striking a universal chord for parents. Now, Adam Mansbach and Ricardo Cortés reunite with Seriously, Just Go to Sleep, inviting the children themselves in on the joke. As parents know, kids are well aware of how difficult they can be at bedtime. With Cortés’s updated illustrations (including a cameo appearance by Samuel L. Jackson, who narrated the audio book version of Go the F*** to Sleep) and Mansbach’s new child-appropriate narrative, the book allows kids to recognize their tactics, giggle at their own mischievousness, and empathize with their parents’ struggles–a perspective most children’s books don’t capture. Most importantly, it provides a common ground for children and their parents to talk about one of the most stressful aspects of parenting.

Seriously, Just Go to Sleep came to be when Mansbach read a highly censored rendition of the original book to his three-year-old daughter, and she recognized herself as the culprit and was delighted. “We were getting a lot of feedback from parents, saying that their kids loved the book–read in an altered form–because they recognized themselves in the character of the mischievous kid who’s winning the bedtime battle, and thought it was hilarious. So we figured we’d do a companion volume that lets kids in on the fun.”

Read Review
¡Duérmete, carajo! es un cuento para dormir para los padres que viven en el mundo real, en el cual un par de gatitos ronroneando y unas líneas simpáticas no son lo suficiente para zumbar a un niño pequeño a dormir felizmente. Profano, cariñoso y franco de manera radical, cuenta la conocida y callada tribulación de acostar a su angelito. Bello, subversivo y para mearse ¡Duérmete, carajo! es un libro para padres experimentados, nuevos e incipientes. (Y probablemente es mejor no leérselo a los pequeños.)

Named one of the 20 Greatest New Father’s Day Gifts by Advocate.com!

“No matter what the country or the language, parents all over the world–loving, frustrated, exhausted parents–know what Adam Mansbach means. Since 2011, his comically obscene picture book has sold more than 1.5 million copies in dozens of languages from Afrikaans to Japanese to Nynorsk. And later this year, his little book will venture into new territory with a Jamaican patois translation: ‘Go de R–s to Sleep.'”
The Washington Post/Style Blog

“This version of Adam Mansbach’s profane, affectionate, and radically honest book will remind whole new audiences about the absurdities of parenting. Just don’t read it to the kids.”

Praise for Go the Fuck to Sleep:

“A new Bible for weary parents.”
New York Times

“Incredibly appealing.”
NPR

“A parenting zeitgeist…A phenomenon that has stunned the publishing world and may just redefine the modern ‘parenting’ market.”
Washington Post

“Delightfully obscene.”
Newsweek

“Nothing has driven home a certain truth about my generation, which is approaching the apex of its childbearing years, quite like this deranged book.”
New Yorker

The best-selling Go the F*** to Sleep has been translated into over thirty languages worldwide. Now it is finally translated for Jamaican and other Caribbean parents of the world. Given how many West Indians live in the US and Canada, the market for this book should be broad, but focused mainly on areas with a large Caribbean community.

Vai Dormir, P*##A

Vai Dormir, P*##A foi escrito para pais que vivem no mundo real, em que histórias sobre gatinhos sonolentos e rimas fofinhas não conseguem fazer as crianças embarcarem para a abençoada viagem ao mundo dos sonhos.

Profano, afetivo e radicalmente honesto, o livro captura a frustração dos pais ao tentarem, sem sucesso, colocar seus filhos para dormir. Escrito para pais e mães de primeira viagem, experientes ou que ainda estão esperando, Vai Dormir, P*##A é subversivo, catártico e de morrer de rir.

O contraste entre o desespero crescente dos versos e as idílicas ilustrações torna este livro inesquecível, principalmente na hora de colocar os anjinhos na cama. Mas cuidado: talvez você não deva ler esta história para seus filhos dormirem.

“Um livro infantil para adultos. Eu ri alto. Hilário.” – David Byrne, músico, pai de uma menina

“Finalmente, alguém que diz as coisas como elas realmente são. É engraçado sem culpa, uma dádiva.” – Cristina García, autora de “As Irmãs Agüero”, mãe de uma menina
