"GO THE F**K TO SLEEP" (REVIEW) AKASHIC BOOKS

"GO THE F**K TO SLEEP" BY ADAM MANSBACH

Unless you are an extremely modern parent, that don't mind cursing around your children don't mistake this book for a child's book! With that being said though, the humor which it contains that is focused toward adults is supremely hilarious and had me laughing all the way through. Of course being primarily a picture book it was a fast read but it's worth the short time just to be able to understand and identify with those times you've actually thought such colorful prose in your own mind while dutifully (and often times unsuccessfully) trying to get your young child to go to sleep. 

I allowed my mother-in-law, father-in-law, and my husband to read it and they all loved it. This book is of course for adults but it is a work of art as well. The illustrations rendered by Ricardo Cortes are beautiful while the text is laugh-out-loud funny. 
Don't miss out on this one, it is a must read if for no other reason than to have a few minutes of laughter in an otherwise dreary day.
