My husband forwarded this link to me from a college message board that he reads. I thought it was a joke. Nope, it’s for realz and it’s available for pre-order. What do you think? Funny for a baby shower joke gift?… or no place, no how! I wouldn’t read it to the kids but I know a few dads (and dads-to-be) who would appreciate the humor. I mean, these wee ones do test our patience with their wakeful ways.
Want to see an excerpt or wash author Adam Mansbach’s mouth out with soap? He does include a disclaimer in his bio:
Adam Mansbach’s daughter Vivien is two and a half. His novels include The End of the Jews, winner of the California Book Award, and the best-selling Angry Black White Boy, a San Francisco Chronicle Best Book of 2005. His fiction and essays have appeared in The New York Times Book Review, The Boston Globe, Vibe, The Believer, Los Angeles Times, and elsewhere. He is the 2010—2011 New Voices Professor of Fiction at Rutgers University. This is his first children’s book. You probably should not read it to actual children, and if you do, he cannot be held legally responsible.
What do you think?
Read on for a peek inside…
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 f*ck to sleep.
