Description - F**k, Now There Are Two of You by Adam Mansbach

Adam Mansbach famously gave voice to two of parenting's primal struggles in Go the F**k to Sleep and You Have to F**king Eat-the unrivalled pair of New York Times best sellers that ushered in a new era of radical honesty in humour books for parents. But what could possibly be left?

Parents-new, old, expectant-of multiple children already knew the answer and Adam discovered it for himself by having two more kids, less than two years apart. F**k, Now There Are Two of You is a loving monologue about the new addition to the family, addressed to a big sibling and shot through with Adam's trademark profane truth-telling. Gorgeously illustrated and full of unspoken sentiments channelled directly from the brains of parents worldwide, F**k, Now There Are Two of You articulates all the fears and frustrations attendant to the simple, maths-defying fact that two is a million more kids than one.

As you probably know by now, you shouldn't read it to a child.

Book Review: F**k, Now There Are Two of You by Adam Mansbach - Reviewed by (15 Sep 2019)

4 stars F**k, Now There Are Two Of You is the third book in the Go The F**k To Sleep series 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.

So, the parents of the new baby think they're finally handling it OK. They get a bit too cocky, or maybe just oops, and there's another baby on the way. How hard can it be? Harder than they ever dreamed, that's what. Adam Mansbach demonstrates just a few of the ways that #2 will impact the lives of parents (and that’s before they even think about college for two dependants). Parents will nod and groan at the thought of the inconvenience of the extra baby paraphernalia, the lost sleep, the loss of down-time and zero leisure, the challenge of the smallest excursion, the jealous sibling behaviour and the added cost.

Mansbach does it all, once again, with a generous helping of expletives, the ones parents try NOT to use around kids. The rhyming is slightly awkward, but the sentiments will surely resonate with parents of one plus..... Definitely a book for adults: keep out of reach of children.
