The Book That Made Me: Philip Reeve 16/10/19
The Parent Agency
Barry Bennett has a long list of things he dislikes about his parents: being boring; being too tired, not letting him play video games and getting a limo to take him to see the latest James Bond film on his birthday (and naming him Barry) being just some of their deeply heinous crimes. But what if the tables were turned and children could choose their parents? What would Barry do?
With a thoughtful look at just what might happen in an alternative world, David Baddiel explores what most children will probably have considered at some point in their lives - trying out different parents - with hilarious results.
