The bestselling Go the F*** to Sleep has been translated into over thirty languages worldwide. Now it is finally translated for Jamaican and other Caribbean parents of the world. Go de Rass to Sleep 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 blissfully off to dreamland. Profane, affectionate, and radically honest, California Book Award–winning author Adam Mansbach's verses perfectly capture the familiar—and unspoken—tribulations of putting your little angel down for the night. In the process, they open up a conversation about parenting, granting us permission to admit our frustrations and laugh at their absurdity. Go de Rass to Sleep is beautiful, subversive, and pants-wettingly funny—a book for parents new, old, and expectant. You probably should not read it to your children.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“No matter what the country or the language, parents all over the world—loving, frustrated, exhausted parents—know what Adam Mansbach means. Since 2011 his comically obscene picture book has sold more than 1.5 million copies in dozens of languages, from Afrikaans to Japanese to Nynorsk.” Washington Post Online
“A new bible for weary parents.” New York Times on Go the F*** to Sleep
“Delightfully obscene.” Newsweek on Go the F*** to Sleep
“Nothing has driven home a certain truth about my generation, which is approaching the apex of its childbearing years, quite like this deranged book.” New Yorker on Go the F*** to Sleep
“A parenting zeitgeist…A phenomenon that has stunned the publishing world and may just redefine the modern ‘parenting’ market.” Washington Post on Go the F*** to Sleep
