The Parent Agency

What if picking your parents was as easy as picking this book? Stand-up star David will make you laugh so hard it should be illegal. Listen up: David Walliams has a rival. David Baddiel is also a massive comedy star. He has the same first name. And now he’s proved he’s just as good at writing funny kids’ books you’ll love every bit as much as Mr Stink. Like this one! Every kid knows that parents can be really annoying. So what if you got to choose yours? Just imagine: not the boring, whining grump-bags you were born with. But the super-chilled fun ones you deserve. Your wish is about to come true…

  • David Baddiel is one of the UK’s top comedians
  • He has worked with Frank Skinner and Rob Newman
  • He has written six books and created several TV shows
  • “Funny, sometimes moving, always engaging” – Guardian

    I think that this book was brilliantly amazing! It was quite funny and you could really get to know Barry (the main character). It is awesome and I would recommend it to most people above the age of 8.
