A storybook that says what we all feel
Adam Mansbach’s forthcoming storybook is decidedly not for kids. It articulates the feelings of frustration that every parent experiences when their young child refuses to go to sleep, with allegedly hilarious results. I judge this book by its cover, but here is a (slightly edited) excerpt:
The cats nestle close to their kittens now.
The lambs have laid down with the sheep.
You’re cozy and warm in your bed, my dear
Please go the f**k to sleep.
