How To Train Your Parents Reviews


"There is a moral here for any parent who frets about a child's progress at school . . . Children who read it won't be turned into hostile monsters; they'll chortle away, feel better about themselves and have a lot of jokes to tell you" * The Sunday Times *
"Johnson's comic romp through a miserable school year in the life of almost 13-year-old Louis touches all the real bases of adolescent boys' lives: girls, parents, TV, comedy" * TES *
"Johnson addresses big issues in a frank manner and with a light touch resulting in a book that both children and parents should read" -- Wendy Cooling * Junior Education *
"Written with humour and plenty of attitude, this witty book firmly puts the power in the hands of the children" * Junior *
