Perhaps I will find this funnier when I'm older and have grown children, but for now I found it crass and uncreative. Most older persons I know actually want their kids around, without the kids being a sponge, of course. I can see where the author(s) were going with the "quit being a leech and grow the F up" angle...but the rhymes were lacking and therefore not funny.
I don't have a problem with cursing in literature but I feel curse words should add something instead of the word "fuck" just thro

I received this volume in a First Reads giveaway.

This short parody of the infamous "Go the F*** to Sleep" explores the lives of parents who have to deal with their adult children who won't well...go the f**k away.

Some of the stanzas were really funny and cute and I caught myself laughing a few times but I also felt that some of the stanzs were missing some..oomph. Some I felt were awkward wounding and others I felt needed an additional rhyme to make the parody sound more like a verse.

A really clever and cute parody of a parody-- based on Adam Mansbach's "Go the F**k to Sleep." I see this book as even more of a children's book for adults. An answer to what happens after your kid grows up ... and promptly moves back into your house. Couldn't be better done!

I won this book free through Goodreads. I'm a fan of Go the F*** To Sleep, and this was an amusing parody of it (a parody of a parody- what a concept). The stick figure drawings were hilarious. Let's all hope our children don't end up bothering us like this in our old age.

I got this book from a First Reads giveaway and read it aloud to my husband when I received it. We were both laughing our butts off as I went through it. If you need a good laugh, especially if you're a parent, I highly recommend this short little book.

Sorry-not even worth reviewing-1minutes read at best. illustrations of a 2year old-just trying to ride the shirt tails of Go the F*** To Sleep.
