A few weeks ago, a new children’s book was released that caused a bit of a senstation because of its colorful title. The book, Go the Fuck to Sleep, was written by Adam Mansbach and was illustrated by Ricardo Cortés … and that is all well and good. BUT the audiobook version of Go the Fuck to Sleep was narrated by Samuel L. Jackson and that sent the book’s coolness factor thru the roof. Click below to hear Samuel L. Jackson narrate one of the cutest, funnest and best children’s books available for sale today.
Adam Mansbach’s Go The Fuck To Sleep is described as “a children’s book for adults,” a satirical pastiche of warm and fuzzy bedtime story tropes rewritten as a commentary on the often-frustrating experiences of being a parent—specifically the ordeal of, yes, trying to get your kids to go the fuck to sleep already. It quickly became a No. 1 hit on Amazon, had its movie rights optioned by Fox 2000, and now it’s an audiobook narrated by Samuel L. Jackson, bard of the F-bomb. And by going to Audible.com, you can download it for free, just in time for Father’s Day.
The book is really cute and is worth the read. But, if all you want is the Samuel L. Jackson read audio book version, you can download it for FREE HERE. Those of you who want the book can order it HERE. Brilliant. Just brilliant.
