When a Lullaby Just Won't Cut It

This book hasn't been released yet, but I'm already dying to read it. When asked what his next book was going to be Adam Mansbach, himself a father of a 2.5 year old, jokingly said a children's bedtime story called Go the Fuck to Sleep.  Well, Mansbach received so many positive responses he actually DID write the book. 

I'm obviously not a parent, but after two years nannying to 6 year olds, I can definitely relate.  Here's an excerpt:

"The cats nestle close to their kittens.

The lambs have laid down with the sheep.
You're cozy and warm in your bed, my dear.
Please go the f@#k to sleep."
I'll definitely be picking this one up in October.  Although, I don't think I'll be featuring it during story time.
