In case you missed the previous two books in this series, which is totally okay, they’re picture books for adults on the joys of parenting. With curse words. I adore them. They’re great for a laugh when parenting has got you down. This one is perfect for where I’m at right now. If someone you know is about to add their second child, definitely give them this book to help out when the stress level seems unbearable.— Anna Brown - Katy Budget Books
"Adam Mansbach, whose breakout book Go the F**k to Sleep was recorded by Samuel L. Jackson to viral acclaim, has completely shaken up the children's lit space with his profane, candid, and deeply hilarious odes to the trials of parenthood."
"Larry David is lending his voice to the audiobook version of a popular children's tale. The comedian will narrate F**k, Now There Are Two of You, the third installment in the Go the F**k to Sleep bedtime story series by Adam Mansbach. The sarcastic potty-mouthed book is more for parents than children."
"Big expletive] news Adam Mansbach, the author of the 2011 New York Times bestseller Go the F**k to Sleep is back with another brutally honest book for parents. It's called F**k, Now There Are Two of You, and you need it in your home library (just not on the shelves the kids can reach)."
"Now the author of Go the F**k to Sleep, Adam Mansbach, is coming back with another delightfully apt and crude children's book. It's a book for parents who've welcomed their second child and need to explain the new baby to their first offspring, it's going to be titled F**k, Now There Are Two of You--and it's going to be narrated by LARRY DAVID. I don't know how many of you out there have ever thought, 'I really wish Larry David was here to read my child a bedtime story, ' but I'm sure you're all thinking it now, and amazingly, this is a wild, wild dream that's going to come true."
--Funny or Die
"Adam Mansbach's book F**k, Now There are Two of You, the second sequel to the best-selling Go the F**k to Sleep, addresses what it's like to add a second kid to the mix--and nothing is sugarcoated. That's why the prickly 72-year-old comedian Larry David] is the perfect narrator."

"Adam Mansbach, the author of Go the F**k to Sleep, is back with another brutally honest book for tired parents: F**k, Now There Are Two of You. As the sequel's title implies, it's all about the roller coaster that is welcoming a second child into the family."
"Mansbach hit exactly the right nerve for exhausted parents who were ready to throw their hands up in the air."
--Did You Know?
"F**k, Now There are Two of You, seems brilliantly aimed at skewering the frustrating family dynamic of suddenly having two children to deal with instead of just one. Being an American family of four can be tough as shit, and but thankfully, the 'f**k' book series is here to help."
Adam Mansbach famously gave voice to two of parenting's primal struggles in Go the Fuck to Sleep and You Have to Fucking Eat--the often-imitated, never-duplicated pair of New York Times best sellers that ushered in a new era of radical honesty in humor books for parents. But what could possibly be left?
Parents--new, old, expectant, and grand--of multiple children already knew the answer. Adam discovered it for himself by having two more kids, less than two years apart.
Fuck, 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 chock-full of unspoken sentiments channeled directly from the brains of parents worldwide, Fuck, Now There Are Two of You articulates all the fears and frustrations attendant to the simple, math-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.
