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 F*ck to Sleep and You Have to F*cking Eat. Now F*ck, 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.

Review 2020 red

For those of you that are thinking about having a second child or have just had one this book is for you. It would also make a unique present if you know someone who has had their second child. It is laugh-out-loud funny and contains copious amounts of swearing.

I remember when I was pregnant with my second child another mum saying to me, having a second one is hard, but anymore after that is easy. I thought she was joking but she wasn’t. Going from one child to two feels strange, and I feel this book perfectly sums it up.

The illustrations by Owen Brozman are perfect and full-page. My favourite image is of their eldest child wanting to be like a baby again, stood in the new baby’s cot with a dummy in his mouth, it certainly brought back memories.

I can see parents nodding in agreement at the lack of sleep or items everywhere or even the behaviour of their older child who goes from wanting to help and be loving to wanting to be the little one again.

This is not a book for children, this is a picture book for adults. Just like the original book by Adam Mansbach, ‘Go the F*ck to Sleep’, this book makes light of what being a parent is really like.
