Ready for some adult humor, that will tickle most parents funny bone? Well, this little book is for you! Our son, now an adult, was the worse little offender at bedtime. His reluctance to sleep was legion in our extended family, so much so that the only time we received a good night's rest, was on the rare occasion when we had him spend the night with our relatives. I gifted the book to another parent, presented a copy to my son, and shared with one of my coworkers: the laughter was immediate and continuous. Honestly, some of the rhymes were not the best that could be imagined, but the use of such colorful language, in this context was hilariously surprising. I am reminded of someone like Betty White swearing on SNL; you will most likely be smiling now if you recall the moment! Be forewarned: if you are offended by earthy language, or the use of such language in regard to the sleeping habits of kids, this book is not for you. My grandmother, for example, would not appreciate Mr. Mansbach's book. But if you are open minded, have a funny bone and suffered through your kiddo's unwillingness to get to bed, you will find this little book a real treat! Enjoy!!!
