There is a deep and screaming niche for this book. I guess that's why it went viral so quickly and has catapulted onto all the bestseller lists. Mansbach initially wrote this as a Facebook post. He and his wife were dying a quick death due to an extended sleep desert. I heard him interviewed on the CBC last week and he intimated that royalties will now pay for his screaming baby daughter's university education. I was skeptical about the phenomenon before I heard him interviewed, but he was genuinely engaging and funny, so I decided to take a peek. Well, along with David Byrne, I really did laugh out loud. As well, the illustrations by Ricardo Cortes convey a real respect for nature from all over the world. This book should be given to every new parent because, as we all know, humour gets us through.
