go-the-f-to-sleep.topThe unfortunately titled Go the **** To Sleep bestseller is a direct parody of my children’s picturebook, It’s Time to Sleep, My Love. You can’t make this stuff up.  The author refuses to admit it, but for my commentary, click here.

BUY THIS BOOK OR DESTROY THE PLANET…

HARD CHOICES… WE ALL FACE THEM… For example, many of us are looking for the perfect bedtime book — one the kids ask for over and over, that soothes them and gets them to sleep in a jiff!

BUT DID YOU KNOW THAT GOODNIGHT MOON IS DESTROYING OUR PLANET??!!

It’s true! No one knows just why, but since the publication of Goodnight Moon in 1947, pollution around the globe has increased dramatically! Before the book’s publication, no one had even heard of the word “smog”! This children’s classic might even be responsible for “El Niño” and all of the extreme weather of the last few years. Can we afford to gamble with the planet by buying such a book??? What CAN we do?

In desperation, some have turned to other bedtime bestsellers, like Guess How Much I Love You? As IF! Hard anecdotal evidence now shows that many of that book’s most devoted readers are notorious litterbugs! (Boo!) The plastic bags and garbage one sees along highways can be so depressing! Ironically, even Nutbrown Hare wouldn’t last very long in that kind of toxic environment!

Let’s face it: parents are in a pickle. Because we now know that buying Goodnight Moon (hiss!!!) or those other books is the moral equivalent of shooting wolves and polar bears from a plane! That, my friends, is unacceptable!

BUT WAIT!! There IS a way outl! Because now there’s an Environmentally-Friendly Alternative to Goodnight Moon and all of those other irresponsible Earth-destroying publications!! I’m talking about It’s Time to Sleep, My Love — the new children’s lullabye book that’s as environmentally-friendly and lovable as a gurgling baby possum! It won’t mess with the ozone layer OR those wacky polar ice-caps! And even if somehow it does — you’ll get a full refund!

IT’S TIME TO SLEEP, MY LOVE is the Environmentally Safe lullabye book that’s putting the whole world to sleep — without poisoning the planet! It’s the green alternative that’ll make your friends green with envy! Are you ready to make your purchase and feel good about it? CLICK HERE TO SAVE THE PLANET!! HURRY!!

Don’t delay! Buy this book and send a stern message to all those reckless planet-destroying hooligans! Buy FIVE copies and tell ‘em you’ve had enough of their shabby polluting tomfoolery! This is serious! And as a way of helping to clean up the planet, Amazon.com has taken this gorgeous $17 book and SLASHED the price to $10.17! IT’S TOO GOOD TO BE TRUE, ISN’T IT?

CLICK HERE TO TAKE ADVANTAGE OF THIS POSSIBLE CLERICAL ERROR TODAY!!!

Yours for a cleaner planet,
