- Customer reviews:
"Beautiful, brilliant, funny as fuck. A new Contented Little Baby Book for the discontented parent" -- Helen Walsh, author of GO TO SLEEP, mother of one
"This is the most honest children's book ever written. And it's f*cking hilarious" -- A.J. Jacobs, author of THE YEAR OF LIVING BIBLICALLY, father of three
"An instantly recognisable and timeless theme tune for bleary-eyed parents everywhere - a hymn to the horrors of bedtime. Beautifully crafted, rhythmical, affectionate, profane and searingly honest, it is very funny." -- Alex Frean, Times
"A gleeful howl of blasphemy ... for the exhausted parent, nudged to the brink of sanity by lack of sleep, GTFTS is more than a reason to snigger - it's a gesture of compassion." -- Benjamin Secher, Daily Telegraph
"Bedtime stories will never be the same again" -- Viv Groskop, The Guardian
"A children's book for grown-ups! I really did laugh out loud - hilarious!" -- David Byrne, musician, father of one
"The secret anthem of tired parents everywhere" -- Bliss Boyard, author of ONE DROP: MY FATHER'S HIDDEN LIFE, mother of two
"Hilariously funny, it gets the tone bang on - and it's comforting to know bedtime is a universally fraught experience.", News of the World
"It subverts accepted notions of what is meant by 'good' parenting ... a clever conceit, executed with panache", The Lady
The bestselling gift book for exhausted parents everywhere

However, it was worth buying this as a gift just to see my sisters little face on opening it, and to hear her laugh in a slightly strained way, and to see her eyes fill with something like hope at the prospect that this might actually work.
When I need some peace and quiet go catch up on the washing or to just generally have some alone time. I read both of my darling boys this book and off they pop into a deep slumber.
Wouldn’t recommend for a child that repeats your words, otherwise you’ll probably be getting a letter from school asking why your child is telling kids to “Go the F*** to sleep” at nap time.
Not suitable for anyone who is easily offended!
Obviously not safe for a child, but quite entertaining for adults, especially if you have kids or are expecting.
