Product description


"Total genius" (Jonathan Lethem, author of MOTHERLESS BROOKLYN, father of two)

"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)
