Thanks Hsimone! Actually, I noticed that another member reviewed the book after me. That review is categorized in Adult Fiction. However, I looked on Amazon and the book is still classified under Children's Books, although it's also listed under General Humor.

I'm a little uneasy about this being in the children's genre. I would suggest adult just because of the title but that is my opinion. I like how it's in a rhyme, but the structure makes it seem like a continuous thought. Thank you for your honest review.

Thanks for the review. I've seen cases where the book somehow ends up in a different category to that initially intended (if you upload it originally in an account, sometimes something seems to get lost in translation when the book is placed in other Amazon stores) but it should not be in a children's category. But it sounds amusing for parents. Or for the children we once were.

Very insightful review. I was wondering why this was in the children books section. No way I would read this to my little sisters.

I can't imagine any parent picking up such a book for a child! Maybe a teenager? It could be a "fun" way to get into those serious conversations that parents of teens need to have.
Life without a good book is something the CatInTheHat cannot imagine.


Grateful to get the opportunity to explore new books with those in the OBC.

I've read - and listened to Samuel Jackson's audio version - of Go to Bed, Damn It, and I think it's supposed to be a parody for adults. I hope it's just an error in categorization going on here and that it takes its rightful place alongside the other book mentioned above.

Seems wildly misclassified. Thanks for the review and the warning!

I did a double-take when I saw this book title listed under "Children's Book". :shock: Sounds like a good idea for a comedy... but maybe not so much a children's story? Nice review :)
