SERIOUSLY, YOU HAVE TO EAT
The 100% kid-friendly, G-rated version of the New York Times best-selling parents’ book, You Have to F**king Eat.
SERIOUSLY, YOU HAVE TO EAT
by Adam Mansbach, illustrations by Owen Brozman
On the heels of the New York Times best seller You Have to F**king Eat (a sequel to the worldwide mega–best seller Go the F**k to Sleep), now comes the version that is entirely appropriate to read to—and with—children. While the message and humor will be similar to the adult version, there will, of course, be no profanity whatsoever. Step aside Green Eggs and Ham, there’s a new, 21st-century book in town that will compel all finicky children to eat!
Adam Mansbach ’s novels include the best-selling Angry Black White Boy, a San Francisco Chronicle Best Book of 2005, as well as the novels Rage is Back, The Dead Run, and The End of the Jews. His fiction and essays have appeared in The New York Times Book Review, The Believer, Granta, and the Los Angeles Times. He is the author of the worldwide best sellers Go the F**k to Sleep and You Have to F**king Eat.
Owen Brozman has illustrated for National Geographic, Time Out New York, Scholastic, Ninja Tune, Definitive Jux Records, and numerous other clients. He is the illustrator of the New York Times best seller You Have to F**king Eat.
(Reminds me of a certain little somebody who lives in my home, who shall remain nameless.)

It will arrive just in time to gift it to your brother-in-law, who, upon unwrapping it, will clutch it immediately to his chest and shake his head furiously at his waist-high daughter as she claws at him with her chewed up nails. ‘No, no, it’s not for you,’ he’ll say, laughing and crying at the same time.” —Flavorwire
“An uproarious spoof of bedtime board books.” —SFGate

My thoughts: I love this book! Is it bad that I LOVE the bad word version too? I think Adam Mansbach and I would get along very well! I love the way he writes in such a poetic stance, yet with a sarcastic undertone. That is exactly how I feel most of the time with parenting. It is not always sunshine and roses. A sense of humor a little sarcasm is a must now and then with kids, especially my youngest one, who is really giving me grey hair!
