The sequel to the bestselling classic, Go The F**k to Sleep

From the author of the international bestseller Go the Fuck to Sleep comes a book about the other great parental frustration: getting your little angel to eat something that even vaguely resembles a normal meal.

Profane, loving, and deeply cathartic, You Have to Fucking Eat breaks the code of child-rearing silence, giving mums and dads - new, old and expectant - a much-needed chance to laugh about a universal problem. You probably shouldn't read it to your children.

Praise for Go the Fuck to Sleep:

'The language? WTF! This hilarious, politically incorrect book is totally correct about the feelings of sleepless, brain-dead parents.' Mem Fox

'A new bible for weary parents.' New York Times

'Nothing has driven home a certain truth about my generation, which is approaching the apex of its childbearing years, quite like this deranged book.' New Yorker

  • Once again, very funny.

    You Have To F**king Eat is a sequel to Go The F**k To Sleep by American author and parent, Adam Mansbach. This book is again set out in the style of a children’s picture book, with marvellous illustrations by Owen Brozman, and, once again, this is not a children’s book: profanities abound. But it will certainly appeal to most parents, whether or not their child consents to eat. Mansbach versifies a range of everyday eating situations where children remain stubbornly non-compliant in a manner that will have the reader laughing out loud. It will be interesting to see to what else Mansbach will turn his rhyming talents. Once again, very funny.
