Publisher's Summary

¡Duérmete, carajo! es un cuento para dormir para los padres que viven en el mundo real, en el cual un par de gatitos ronroneando y unas líneas simpáticas no son lo suficiente para zumbar a un niño pequeño a dormir felizmente. Profano, cariñoso, y franco de manera radical, cuenta la conocida - y callada - tribulación de acostar a su angelito. Bello, subversivo - y para mearse - ¡Duérmete, carajo! es un libro para padres experimentados, nuevos e incipientes. (Y probablemente es mejor no leérselo a los pequeños….)

The Spanish edition of the number-one New York Times best seller Go the F--k to Sleep, this 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 blissfully off to dreamland. Profane, affectionate, and radically honest, California Book Award-winning author Adam Mansbach’s verses perfectly capture the familiar - and unspoken - tribulations of putting your little angel down for the night. In the process, they open up a conversation about parenting, granting us permission to admit our frustrations and laugh at their absurdity.

Please note: this audiobook is in Spanish.

Not as good as the English version.

I picked this up as a slight "joke" for my good friend and co-worker who is of Spanish origin and who is also a parent. While the humor is still there, George Lopez just lacks the edge in his Spanish narration that exists in the Samuel L. Jackson version.
