'''''Go the Fuck to Sleep''''' is a 2011 [[ChildrensLiterature children's book]] {{parody}} by Adam Mansbach.

It is the lament of a man whose child will not [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin go the fuck to sleep]]. It went [[MemeticMutation viral]] in galleys, and was then helped by an audiobook [[https://vimeo.com/27019462 read by]] Creator/SamuelLJackson (and later on, [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=N3xFZ0A15Bg by]] Creator/WernerHerzog).

Was later turned into a {{Bowdlerised}} version aimed at children called '''''Seriously, Just Go to Sleep'''''. In September 2014, a proper sequel was released, '''''[[http://www.amazon.com/You-Have-F-g-Eat/dp/1617753785 You Have to Fucking Eat]]'''''.
* AffectionateParody: Of the rhyming, saccharine books normally read to small children at bedtime. This one assuredly cannot be read to a child at bedtime or any other time, unless you buy the aforementioned Bowdlerised version.
* ClusterFBomb
* GagCensor: On the book's cover, the central word in the title is obscured by the Moon.
* HereWeGoAgain / ShaggyDogStory: [[spoiler:The parents succeed in putting their child in bed after much effort, but the beep of their microwave instantly undoes it.]]
* RefugeInAudacity
* SeldomSeenSpecies: One page mentions and has illustrations of pangolins.
* [[SubvertedKidsShow Subverted Kids Book]]: What with the swearing and all.
** A proper SubvertedKidsShow with Noni Hazlehurst's [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3xtcB457jqQ reading]], as many of the Australian fans are old enough to remember her from ''Series/PlaySchool''.
