Children's Bedtime Novel, Go the F**k to Sleep, Headed to the Big Screen

By Dustin Rowles | Trade News | May 10, 2011 | Comments ()


If you check over on Amazon right now, you'll see that Adam Mansbach's parenting book, Go the F*ck To Sleep is the top selling book in the Parenting section. It's also in the top 30 books being sold overall (a couple of weeks ago, it had reached the top 10). The book hasn't even been released yet. In fact, it won't be released until mid-June. But, it does have jacket blurbs from the likes of Jonatham Lethem, David Byrne, and A.J. Jacobs, which is good enough for me to put in my pre-order. It's also good enough for Fox 2000, who has just purchased the rights to adapt the novel, according to It's On the Grid. What's it about? "Go the Fuck to Sleep is a bedtime book for parents who live in the real world, where a few snoozing kitties and cutesy rhymes don't always send a toddler sailing blissfully off to dreamland. Profane, affectionate, and radically honest, California Book Award-winning author Adam Mansbach's verses perfectly capture the familiar -- and unspoken -- tribulations of putting your little angel down for the night."
