Samuel L Jackson voices 'Go The F**k To Sleep'

275x250.jpg Samuel L. Jackson has lent his dulcet tones to the audio version of 'Go The F**k To Sleep' -- a foul-mouthed nursery rhyme book which has become a hit with sleep deprived parents.

The 62-year-old Pulp Fiction star, says he was inspired to record the audio version of the book after he was told about it by his agent who has young twins.

'Go The F**k To Sleep' is a mock bedtime story by Adam Mansbach which is written for parents who realise snoozing kitties and cutesy rhymes don't always send a toddler sailing blissfully off to dreamland.

Each page of the book contains an illustration and radically honest verse which ends with a variation of the words 'Go The F**k To Sleep'… so maybe not one to read to your little angels.

Speaking about why he wanted to voice the six minute audio book, Academy Award nominee Jackson said it made him laugh when he was given it by his agent and reminded him of reading to his own daughter.

"I remember all those times when I did read to my daughter when she was that age," he said.

"Everybody tells you reading stories will put kids to sleep, but it never works. It didn't in my house. Actually if I picked her up and made up a story it worked a lot better.

"I did say 'Go the f**k to sleep' to her a lot and I think at some point she would look at me when I would come in her room and say 'Go the f**k to sleep, daddy?' and I would say 'yeah Ggo the f**k to sleep".
