Publisher's Summary

A children's book for adults in the vein of the mega-best-selling Go the F**k to Sleep, The Kid in the Crib brilliantly reimagines the Dr. Seuss classic The Cat in the Hat for beleaguered parents struggling with the anxieties and challenges of parenting in the 21st century. It substitutes the typical worries, frustrations, and challenges of modern parenting for Seuss's original story about a kindly feline and the children he befriends. It lays out the daily power struggle between parents as they each insist that it's the other one's turn to deal with the befouled diaper, and the bleary-headedness that coincides with an infant's sleeping patterns. Parents will chuckle as they read "The kid spat up white / The kid spat up green / The kid spat up more spit up / Than we'd ever seen."
This pitch-perfect parody paints an honest portrait of parenting that will have moms and dads nodding in recognition and howling with laughter. And it is a story that parents will delight in reading to each other - and even to their kids someday.
