Why buy from World of Books
Our excellent value books literally don't cost the earth
Guy's wry observations of goofy adult behaviour and his sarcastic exchanges keep the laughs coming. The first-person narrative remains breezy while deftly and subtly charting Guy's continuing adjustment to the sobering issues of parental divorce, remarriage, and blending families. * The Horn Book * [Not My Parents] '... the writing and characterisation in this highly entertaining short novel make it a far from ordinary read.' * Michael Thorn, TES Teacher * [Not My Parents] 'A clever take on the search for one's identity.' * School Library Journal * [Not A Proper Mum!] 'Its deft balance of comedy and pathos and its credible characters will hit home.' * Publishers Weekly * Quirky character, rapid fire repartee and a series of devastatiing disaster combine to make this a story which most 10 to 12-year-olds will enjoy. * The School Librarian *
