Profane, affectionate and refreshingly honest, it captures the familiar and unspoken tribulations of putting your child to bed for the night. Colourfully illustrated and hilariously funny, this is a breath of fresh air for parents new, old and expectant*. (*You should probably not read this to your children.)Hide synopsis

For the reviewers complaining about this children's book having profanity, perhaps reading the synopsis first would be a good idea... you know, the part where it says it would be best NOT to read it to children.
Whatever happened to QUALITY books like "Phantom Tollbooth", that have adventure without profanity? Apparently the author of this book has no clue about traditional family values, and doesn't care what his children (or any children for that matter) grow up to be like. Dude, we ALL live in the "real world" but that doesn't mean we have to succumb to trash like this that teaches children language that they're NOT supposed to know. Personally, I wouldn't even read this crap to my dog. (if I had one) That means I would have to read it, and hear myself speaking that way, which I don't want.
I went to your website looking for a good bargain
on books for my kids to read for school. This book is one of the first to come up on your list. I am disgusted that this is a bookstore that has childrens books and this is what you have to offer. Of course I know its an adult book but all the kids will see it in your store or online. What does this world have to offer kids when you have trash like this in a bookstore!!
As two (female) grandparents with two sons and a mixed brood of grandkids... we both roared when we read the book! Buying them both copies for Fathers' Day!
BTW - shared the book with other women friends who all kept nodding, laughing and groaning thru the end. The contrast between the illustrations and telling is perfect.
I love this book. I haven't laughed this hard in ages. I read it over and over again and I laugh every time. It makes great fun of the nightly struggle parents have getting their children to go to sleep. Even if you don't use the "f word" very often, you'll find this little bed time story amusing. It is absolutely brilliant.
I am offended by the title of this book which I consider garbage and do not intend to recommend to anyone I know and I will definitely pass this along. Totally inappropriate for anything having to do with children, even in a so-called humorous way. And yes I know it is directed for adult reading. ...
