Parenthood and profanity…sometimes they go together like PB&J. Which is why writer Adam Mansbach and illustrator Owen Brozman’s book Go The F*ck To Sleep quickly skyrocketed to the top of the New York Times best-seller list—and stayed there!—since its release in 2011. And now the duo is back with its long-awaited follow-up book and faux bedtime story, You Have To F*cking Eat.

“There’s been plenty of enthusiasm for a sequel over the years (and plenty of suggestions),” explains Mansbach, “But I always said I’d only do one if it rang true to me—if I felt like I could imbue it with the same kind of honesty, love, and frustration as the first book. And eating is the other universal source of parental anxiety, a battle of wills just as pitched as sleep can be. From my own experiences and plenty of conversations with other parents, it seemed like a topic folks could use a laugh and a bit of catharsis about.”

The title alone has already elicited a giggle from us, and we can think of a few fellow moms who will be getting this new book for the holidays. If you’re as curious as we are to flip through these pages, mark your calendar for November 12th, when this book hits stores, and pre-order that baby below.

You Have To F*cking Eat, $8.97, Amazon.
