Different kind of bedtime story gives parents a voice - The Boston Globe

I suspect most parents can relate to this book.  There’s also a related “I Will NOT Go the F**k to Sleep!” Kindle book…

There are no statistics on the number of kids holding their parents hostage each night, but here’s one way to measure the extent of the situation: “Go the F**k to Sleep,’’ a sweet-looking book that gives frustrated and exhausted parents a voice, hit the top spot on Amazon’s bestseller list in May — five months before its original publication date.

With its idyllic illustrations of a peaceful twilight, a sleepy town, and cuddly animals, the $14.95 hardcover mimics the style and rhythm of a classic children’s story. But don’t let the children anywhere near it.
