<DIV><p>"Total genius." Jonathan Lethem, author of<i>Motherless Brooklyn</I></p><p><I>Go the Fuck To Sleep</i>is a bedtime book for parents who live in the real world, where a few snoozing kitties and cutesy rhymes don`t always send a toddler sailing off to dreamland. Honest, profane, and affectionate, Adam Mansbach`s verses and Ricardo Cort s` illustrations perfectly capture the familiar and unspoken tribulations of putting your little angel down for the night, and opens up a conversation about parenting in the process. Beautiful, subversive, and pants-wettingly funny,<i>Go the Fuck to Sleep</i>is a perfect gift for parents new, old, or expectant. Here are two sample verses:</p><p>The cats nestle close to their kittens now.<BR>The lambs have laid down with the sheep.<BR>You`re cozy and warm, and I need a drink<BR>Please go the fuck to sleep.</p><p>The world is dark and silent, child.<BR>From the stars to the whales in the deep.<BR>Hell no, you can`t go to the bathroom.<BR>You know where you can go? The fuck to sleep.</p><p><B>Adam Mansbach</B>`s daughter Vivien is two and a half.
