Seriously, Just Go to Sleep is the G-rated version of the very R-rated Go the F*ck to Sleep, which was a children’s book not for children that was released to the pee-in-your-pants kind of laugh-so-hard-it-seriously-hurt reaction from parents everywhere in 2011.
If you’ve ever tried to get some kids to go the f*ck to sleep, then the original book was right up your alley. But if some of those kids got their hands on the original book, then you already know you had to think a little too hard on your feet as you tried to come up with reasons why they weren’t allowed to look at the book that looked like it belonged in the children’s section of the library.
Problem solved. Seriously, Just Go to Sleep keeps the soul of the first book while leaving out the f-bombs and other inappropriate lines.
