This is a fantastically funny book! I bought it as a secret santa present and when I read it not only did i laugh out loud but also related to it too! As you read from start to finish it starts off fairly tame and you feel the frustration build as the book goes on and the tension of the parents builds and the kid will not sleep!! Most parents should empathise with this book in some form!! Funny!

Everyone who has ever had a bad night with a child can identify with the writer of this book! When you have rocked, cuddled, sung the wheels on the bus about twenty times and the little horror is still wide awake! This book about sums it up! Just wonderful to know your not alone in being unable to settle a toddler! The illustrations are wonderfully executed.

A good book, I'm sure, but in a Kindle format it just doesn't quite work. The art is low resolution, and the text sits uncomfortably below. Kind of ruins it.

When I first saw this book I laughed out loud! As a new mother of a seven month old, it really rang true... I bought it as a fathers day gift for my husband and I will buy a copy for every person I know who gets pregnant in future (well at least those with a sense of humour anyway!).

Not only is it superbly written, the illustrations are lovely.

This is absolutely fabulous, it is story that says what most parents think but never say. Is funny and every word is true! A must for all new parents that have a sense of humour.

All parents to young children will relate to this funny, well illustrated bedtime story. As a mum of 3, one of which is 2 yrs old I have been at the end of my tether at bedtime on many occasion in future the thought of this book will help me through! Don't read to your children!!!!
