Finally a book that caters for the mother in me …. initially I thought this was one of those slightly clever photoshop things.
Someone scanned in the original book in, edited the text a little, and then when it was really funny, saved the file and spammed it around a bit.
Lots of guffawing when you open the attachment, but we all know no one is actually going to say this out loud, let alone write it down, and find a publisher to publish it.
I mean really, where is the decency?
Being the sceptic that I am, I used the fine and not-undying art of google to look around and see where this came from. True as nuts, there is the book and if you want the original you can pop along and purchase it at: http://gotheftosleep.com/
I have never heard of Adam Mansbach, but I can say that this book has peaked my interest in him and I might be looking a little closer at Adam from this point forward.
I see that Kalahari has this book available http://www.kalahari.net/books/Go-the-Fuck-to-Sleep/632/41300290.aspx June 2011, so I have added that on my wishlist, and pretty much anyone who is pregnant of having a babyshower in the next few months will be getting one of these books as a present.
Anyway, this file is doing the rounds, and in case you have not seen it here, are a few pages for you – how brilliant is this book?
The illustrations are so divine, and this is such a cool cool book for your mommy-and-baby collection ….
<for the record, five people saw this and sent it to me saying “when I saw this I immediately thought of you….”)
