BOOK REVIEW: The Parent Agency by David Baddiel


A brilliantly funny, gripping novel from a born storyteller,

 The Parent Agency is an epic wish-fulfilment adventure for every child - and for the child in everyone.

 Barry said, a third time, "I wish I had better parents!" And then suddenly the entire room started to shake.

 Barry Bennett hates being called Barry. In fact it's number 2 on the list of things he blames his parents for, along with 1) 'being boring' and 3) 'always being tired'.But there is a world, not far from this one, where parents don't have children. That's far too random for something so big and important.

 In this world, children are allowed to choose their parents.For Barry Bennett, this world seems like a dream come true. Only things turn out to be not quite that simple.

REVIEW BY: Angel, age 13 years, 11 months


This book was loads of fun to read, and it was just as sweet.

I really enjoyed this book because everyone needs to know that your parents will always love you.

This book was about a boy named Barry and his birthday is coming up but his parents won't listen to what he wants! As a last resort he wishes for new parents and he winds up in Youngdow where kids are the boss. Barry lands up at THE PARENT AGENCY where in 5 days he has to pick a new set of perfect parents.

My favorite character is Barry because he is very relatable to every kid. I love how the author accomplished this.

I liked the whole book so I didn't have a favorite part.

I give this book 4 out of 5 stars and recommend it for ages 8 and up.
