Description

The children’s version of the #1 New York Times bestselling classic
Seriously, Just Go to Sleep
is the G-rated, child-friendly 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.
Of course, kids are well aware of how difficult they can be at bedtime. With Mansbach's new child-appropriate narrative, kids will 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 their most stressful daily rituals.
This fresh rendition includes Cortés’s updated illustrations, with a cameo appearance by Samuel L. Jackson, who narrated the audio book version of Go the F*** to Sleep.

This is a fixed-format ebook, which preserves the design and layout of the original print book.

From Publishers Weekly

Feb 13, 2012 – Like Cee Lo Green, whose F**k You! went from obscenity-based soul to squeaky-clean pop, Mansbach and Cort s recast 2011 s Go the F**k to Sleep for wider audiences. The changes diminish the cathartic humor of the original: Go the F**k to Sleep acknowledged how a sleepless child can drive a parent to cursing, bitter tears, and self-reproach. This version (dedicated to all the children... may your kids bring you as much joy as you ve brought us ) speaks reasonably, if curtly, to children up late. Mansbach leaves his four-line stanzas in the same order, censoring punch lines without improving on clunky rhymes. Hell no becomes No way, and I know you re not thirsty. That s bullshit. Stop lying becomes I know you re not thirsty. You just had a drink./ Stop goofing around now, and sleep. Cort s makes only minor substitutions in his surreal paintings of children, who snooze with sleepy tigers or restlessly occupy their cribs. Given infinitely better options like Dinosaur vs. Bedtime and Don t Let the Pigeon Stay Up Late! young and old ought to skip this unfunny, off-key revision. All ages.
