It turns out that two is a million more kids than one. Adam Mansbach famously gave voice to two of parenting's primal struggles in Go the Fuck to Sleep and You Have to Fucking Eat. Now Fuck, Now There Are Two of You tackles a new addition to the family and 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.
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.
For fans of Diary of a Wimpy Kid and Big Nate comes the first book in a side-splitting illustrated series from comedian and film star Craig Robinson, #1 New York Times bestselling author Adam Mansbach, and NAACP History Maker recipient and cartoonist Keith Knight.
Jake can barely play an instrument, not even a kazoo. And his art? It's better suited for Pictionary than Picasso. Which is a real problem because Jake just faked his way into the Music and Art Academy for the gifted and talented (and Jake is pretty sure he is neither). More jokester than composer, Jake will have to think of something quick before the last laugh is on him.
Featuring more than 160 illustrations, Jake the Fake is sure to bring the laughs with his hilarious high jinks!
For fans of Diary of a Wimpy Kid and Big Nate comes the third book in this laugh-out-loud series about a class clown faking his way through middle school from comedian and film star Craig Robinson, #1 New York Times bestselling author Adam Mansbach, and NAACP History Maker recipient and cartoonist Keith Knight. Life couldn't be better for Jake. He's a student at Music and Arts Academy and a budding comedian, and he finally put an end to his fake-ster ways . . . or so he thought. There's a new girl at school, and Jake would do anything to impress her, even pretending to be a master chef. And a world-renowned barber? But at home, Jake is less impressed with his mom's news: she's pregnant. Now Jake has to fake being happy about becoming the Middle Child. The King of Cool is about to drop his chill. Luckily, he has good friends and laughs on his side, along with more than two hundred illustrations--all about him!

Go the F**k to Sleep is a bedtime book for parents who live in the real world, where a few snoozing kitties and cutesy rhymes don't always send a toddler sailing off to dreamland.
Profane, affectionate and refreshingly honest, it captures the familiar and unspoken tribulations of putting your child to bed for the night.
Colourfully illustrated and hilariously funny, this is a breath of fresh air for parents new, old and expectant*.

At the age of nineteen, saxophone prodigy Latif James-Pearson boards a bus to Manhattan to find his aging idol, the great Albert Van Horn. The centers of Latif’s universe soon become a Harlem boarding house, where he spends his days practicing intensely, and the downtown club where Van Horn's group performs and Latif hides in the shadows, listening. There, he begins a complex affair with an older white painter named Mona, and starts working for Say Brother, a charismatic drug dealer. But as Latif’s frustrations with his playing mount, and the demands of balancing artistry, hustling, and love push him toward crisis, he is forced to confront his music, his past, and himself. A virtuosic story told with lyrical intensity, Shackling Water heralds the arrival of an important new voice in American literature.
"No matter what the country or the language, parents all over the
world--loving, frustrated, exhausted parents--know what Adam
Mansbach means. Since 2011, his comically obscene picture book has
sold more than 1.5 million copies in dozens of languages from
Afrikaans to Japanese to Nynorsk. And later this year, his little
book will venture into new territory with a Jamaican patois
translation: 'Go de R-s to Sleep.'"

In the immediate future, an alien race of religious zealots plans to honor their god through the ritualistic annihilation of our planet. Only one person knows this: Milan Marlowe, the world's most powerful man, a megalomaniacal media baron with ideas about how to turn the end of the world into a profit for the company. The only hope for the planet is to meet the invaders according to their own customs and set forth The Challenge of the Heretic--a one-on-one gladiator battle for the right to exist. Marlowe launches Beast Wars, a televised interspecies death match tournament to determine Earth's strongest creature. Enter Bruno Bolo--a brutish but lovable Florida alligator trainer who finds himself navigating a world of feuding black-belt gorilla trainers, corporatized killer sharks, on-call blues combos, phony volcanoes, great space arks, Yeats-quoting pit fighters, and looming alien eradicators--Earth's last, desperate hope. Shot through with sly social commentary and eye-popping action, The Nature of the Beast is a stunning visual and literary tour de force.
