On the heels of the "New York Times" best seller "You Have to F**king Eat" (a sequel to the worldwide mega-best seller "Go the F**k to Sleep"), now comes the version that is entirely appropriate to read to--and with--children. While the message and humor will be similar to the adult version, there will, of course, be no profanity whatsoever.
Step aside "Green Eggs and Ham," there's a new, 21st-century book in town that will compel all finicky children to eat

Capitalizing on the success of his first picture book parody, Go the F**k to Sleep, Mansbach provides a cleaned-up version of its sequel, You Have to F**king Eat, a snarky takedown of juvenile eating habits (or the lack thereof). It must be asked, though: why remove the obscenities from a book aimed squarely at adults? A change like “How the hell are you growing/ when you basically don’t f***** eat?” to “How the heck are you growing/ When you basically don’t ever eat?” is merely cosmetic. And although the punch line, “For me a scotch, neat,” gets an allusive substitution (“For me, a drink that smells like peat”), the page retains its image of a child clinking her glass of milk with the parent’s tumbler. Brozman’s slick, Rotoscope-style spreads show many different adorably pouting children of various ethnicities refusing to eat. This at least lends a little inclusiveness to the verse, whose restaurant-dining, asparagus-eating paternal voice addresses only its own child. This is not a kid-friendly version of the book; it’s merely the original with the fun taken out of it. All ages. (Oct.)
