Told in the tradition of a lovely bedtime read for kids...sort of...but don't let your kids listen in! Unless, of course, they're adults and have kids of their own. Samuel L. Jackson is the perfect narrator for this short spoof on a kid's picture book. Any parent, grandparent, aunt, uncle, etc., who is familiar with the bedtime routine of "I want a drink of water!" "I can't sleep!" will appreciate this drily witty, if explicit, audio book version of a picture book for grownups.
Say something about yourself!
Ever wonder what it's like to be a kid in Samuel L. Jackson's house? I imagine it's something like this. This is just drop-dead funny for the simplest of reasons: we've all been there.
Samuel L Jackson
the expression of just pure desperation of trying to get a small child to just lay down and go to sleep
Samuel L Jackson has one of those voices that just emotes whatever he is saying, you don't even need to see his face to feel the emotion
The eternal conflict of parent and child
This is on my iPod and my iPad, I carry it with me always. If I am having a bad day, I can take a few minutes listen to this and have no choice but to laugh and remember there are much more frustrating things than what I am dealing with at the time. Love it!!!
When I need a good laugh, I listen to this. It is short and a nice break from a stressful situation.
When I need a little reality - sanity, and adult confirmation that I'm not the only one pulling my hair out to be a good parent, I slip my ear buds on and smile through this 6 mnute book and ALWAYS finish with a big smile and relaxed. Samuel L Jackson is a perfect reader for this one :O) I'll hold onto it for many years.
Yes! Samuel L Jackson brings a different reality to my mind! I enjoyed listening to another as I pretty much beeped through m,y mind while reading!
not all that memorable except for the swearing ..sorry!
HE curses better than I would...lol.
I loved the humor & it was right-on point about the "joys" of putting kids to bed
His soothing voice & inflection
I read this to a co-worker, the father of 2 young children- he laughed so hard in recognition. The next day he down-loaded his own copy
