Product Description

A New York Times Best Seller

One of BookRiot's Must-Read Books from Indie Presses for 2014

One of Flavorwire's 50 Best Independent Fiction and Poetry Books of 2014

"You Have to F***ing Eat makes parents of picky eaters smile."
--TODAY Parents

"Adam Mansbach...will delight exhausted and exasperated parents everywhere for a second time with You Have to F**king Eat--another children's book that is most definitely not for children."
--Entertainment Weekly

"An equally hilarious ode to kids at the table."
--Huffington Post

"Parents, Adam Mansbach gets you. He understood that sometimes your kids just won't go the f**k to sleep. And, in his new foulmouthed bedtime book for parents out Wednesday, he understands that sometimes they just won't f**king eat. And he knows, well, it's really f**king annoying. So how about some f**king comic relief?"
--GQ

"A likeable variation on a universal f***ing theme."
--Kirkus Reviews

"A hilarious sendup of the eternal fight between kids and their parents over what to eat and when--if at all."
--New York Journal of Books

"If you're a frustrated parent with a picky child, or even just one who appreciates 'deranged' humor, especially humor that rhymes, this is a terrific read for you...Parents will enjoy a good chuckle and subtle reminder that everything is better, including parenthood, if tackled with a little bit of humor."
--San Francisco Book Review

"You Have to F**cking Eat, Sequel to Go the F**k to Sleep, Is Finally F**king Coming...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."
--San Francisco Chronicle

"A 21st-century bedtime story for the ages (and all ages) if there ever was one."
--Bay Area Reporter

"Parents, when your precious angel rips you from your three hours of sleep to demand food that he won't actually eat, you'll want this f'ing book."
--Mashable

"Forthcoming new book by genius funnyman Adam Mansbach."
--BoingBoing

"Mansbach freely, fabulously curses out the uncensored truth; Brozman makes sure you'll recognize your irresistible, equitably diverse mini-mes with those all-too-familiar expressions, from utter disdain to overwhelming trust and every little eyeball roll in between."
--BookDragon/Smithsonian Asian Pacific American Center

"If your kid has never presented you with some new mind-boggling preference at mealtime, I suspect you're lying."
--Persephone Magazine

"This book is genius. It is what every parent is thinking when their child refuses dinner."
--Old School/New School Mom

"With this soon-to-be crude classic, Adam Mansbach has nailed it with his undeniable animal/child comparisons all cozily complimented by Owen Brozman's humorous illustration--we dare you not to giggle into your eggnog."
--Curious Mom

"Illustrations are just as enjoyable and the narrative again paints the perfect picture."
--Roundtable Reviews

From the author of the international best seller Go the F*** to Sleep comes a long-awaited sequel 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***ing Eat breaks the code of child-rearing silence, giving moms and dads new, old, grand- and expectant, a much-needed chance to laugh about a universal problem.

A perfect gift book like the smash hit Go the F*** to Sleep (over 1.5 million copies sold worldwide!), You Have to F***ing Eat perfectly captures Mansbach's trademark humor, which is simultaneously affectionate and radically honest. You probably shouldn't read it to your kids, so there's a kid-friendly version, Seriously, You Have to Eat.

My son's bedtime story for the past 3 years has been "Go the F***k to Sleep", and it has been wonderful.

However, as he get's older and tries to refine his toddler palate he becomes increasingly picky at meal time. Often, he chooses to play instead of eat. That's not going to fly in my home. To teach several life lessons (including the importance of a well-balanced meal) we've added this book into our rotation. He's responded well, but your mileage may vary because, well, kids are a$$h*les.

Mama may be a nurse, maid, teacher, and builder of wooden trains, but I am not a short order cook. I use profane literature to communicate such to my children. 10/10 would buy again.

Perfection~!
by AnnyRUOK? (5 out of 5 stars)
January 6, 2017

This satire book is so wonderful, it should be included in every first time mother's baby shower. This book makes you laugh with the truth of the situation when trying to make a fussy kid eat. As a parent and a grand parent, I can attest that all kids go through a phase where they simply will not eat. This book is for everyone and I don't care if you swear or not... hilarious!

You have to f*****g get this book!
by Emily S. (5 out of 5 stars)
December 4, 2018

Our dear, sweet 6 yr old daughter is SO stubborn about eating dinner. After a very exhausting evening at the dinner table, I ordered this for my husband as a Christmas gift. Needless to say, it ended up needing to be busted out much earlier. We love the Go The F to Sleep book, and this one does not disappoint either. I think that all parents need both books! A little humor helps in those frustrating moments. These also pair perfectly with a glass of wine or a stiff drink.

Buy it for yourself, buy it for your friends.
by Erik (5 out of 5 stars)
October 11, 2016

This book is funny. It's worth a purchase for yourself or a friend who has a kid that's anywhere between 6 months and 4 years. The rhymes are solid. The sentiment is accurate. My entire diet on some days is made of the stuff my daughter doesn't eat. Anyone who's fed a kid will appreciate reading it twice. Only toddlers and the insane read books more than twice, but this is one you'll still enjoy on the second read.

Good Fun
by G. Ward (4 out of 5 stars)
July 27, 2015

If you are a fan of Adam Mansbach's Go the F*** to sleep and its accompanying audio book narrated by Samuel L. Jackson, then you will probably love this book. Written and drawn in the style of a children's book, You Have to F****** Eat addresses to age old battle fought between child and parent at meal time. Imagine Good Night Moon or Where the Wild Things Are if they were written by a foul-mouthed sailor. The language is raw, but the tone and "story" are pitch perfect.

As I stated in my review of Go The F*** to Sleep, avoid this book if you are easily offended.

I took a star off because this is Adam Mansbach's second children's book parody and I felt like it rehashed the original book's formula without breaking much new comedic territory.

Very funny
by Gator girl (5 out of 5 stars)

Oh my goodness. Best. Book. Ever. I got the other one as well, and they are hilariously true. These would be a great gift for any new/old parents. 😂

A fun book that any parent can relate to...
by Grassshopper021 (5 out of 5 stars)
March 9, 2016

This book is absolutely hilarious! It is not meant for children, but you can edit it as reading it so it can be a children's book. The pictures are funny, the situations can be related to, and the book is overall really funny. This book should be read by all parents who have a picky eater. My son pulls the same stuff kids do in this book. The page where the kid refuses to eat pancakes because he suddenly hates them, when they used to be his favorite, and the parent told him he's full of **** and to stop lying made me laugh. My son will love something one day, and then claim to hate it the next. This would be a great gift to anyone that has a toddler, or anyone who has a kid that can be a jerk about eating ;)

Hilarious!
by Lindsey F. (5 out of 5 stars)

I tried to read this book to my 3-year-old, editing out the cussing of course, but couldn't get through it because I was laughing so hard. She was annoyed because she couldn't understand why the book was so funny, so she walked away while I finished it by myself, which was okay with me! I totally recommend this!!!

My failure's complete
by Paul (4 out of 5 stars)
November 12, 2014

The follow up to the Samuel L Jackson narrated "Go the F*** to Sleep", You Have to F--king Eat, narrated by Breaking Bad's Bryan Cranston has completed the narration of my entire evening (3.5 & 5 yr old boys) by two of the best cursers known to man. If only we could 3rd and 4th books in the series (get in your car seat, don't run into the street) narrated by Al Pacino and Christopher Walken to cover the rest of my week.

I feel like this guy lives with me. I have two kids. One won't sleep, one won't eat. This is another instant classic in our house.
