You can now pre-order your hardcover copy of Adam Mansback and Ricard Cortés' Go the Fuck to Sleep, a bedtime book for modern parents proving that it's never too late for an unhappy childhood. From the description:

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. Honest, profane, and affectionate, Adam Mansbach's verses and Ricardo Cortés' illustrations perfectly capture the familiar -- and unspoken -- tribulations of putting your little angel down for the night, and open up a conversation about parenting in the process. Beautiful, subversive, and pants-wettingly funny, Go the Fuck to Sleep is a perfect gift for parents new, old, or expectant.

at least the tiger is gone the fuck to sleep
Seriously, fuck your teddy bear.

Here is a sample verse:

The cats nestle close to their kittens now.
The lambs have laid down with the sheep.
You're cozy and warm in your bed, my dear
Please go the fuck to sleep.

Unsurprisingly, the book is now number two on the Amazon bestseller list, thanks probably in part to the unauthorised PDF copy that's making the rounds.
