On Ron Koertge’s “Lunacy” (from November 2011)

go-the-eff-to-sleepHere’s a truth that I believe is universally acknowledged (apologies to Jane Austen): at bedtime, parents want their kids to go the eff to sleep. Remember that parent-trap by Adam Mansbach from 2011? Inspired by that publishing phenomenon, Ron Koertge’s “Lunacy” was published in the November/December 2011 issue of The Horn Book Magazine. We offer it here because a good laugh is cathartic and because we need to look for common ground now more than ever. You’re welcome.
