Author’s Best-Selling Children’s Book Hasn’t Come Out Yet

Adam Mansbach’s forthcoming children’s book started as a post on Facebook. In October 2011, the book will be released. The book is already a bestseller, topping the Amazon list. The book is called Go the F *** to Sleep. Awesome.

According to the NY Times, Mansbach, who has written books called Angry Black White Boy and The End of the Jews, first thought of the book in June 2010 after his own two-year-old wouldn’t go to bed. He spoke publicly about the book a couple of weeks ago, that launched it on Twitter, and he sent around a PDF that went viral, and bam! Number one status.

The book is filled with the poetry of an exhausted parent, like:

All the kids from day care are in dreamland.
The froggie has made his last leap.
Hell no, you can’t go to the bathroom.
You know where you can go? The fuck to sleep.

I’m not a parent, but I am an aunt. I feel you Adam.
