From Adam Mansbach, the author of the international bestseller Go the F**k 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 F**king 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.

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 childrenâ€™s picture book, with marvellous illustrations by Owen Brozman, and, once again, this is not a childrenâ€™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.
