My Parents are Out of Control Synopsis

Louis doesn't think much of it when his mum and dad ask him for tips on how to be cool. In fact, he thinks it's pretty funny watching them bump fists and use words like 'safe', 'sick' and 'wicked'. Until Dad turns up outside Louis' new school dressed like a rapper, that is...Suddenly they're trying to friend Louis and all his classmates on Facebook, and wearing baseball caps backwards - in public. Louis and his best friend Maddy are horrified. Mum and Dad have taken things too far ...and immediate action is needed!

My Parents are Out of Control Press Reviews

Louis the Laugh, who readers may have met before in How To Train Your Parents, flunks exams and wants to be a comedian. In My Parents Are Out Of Control, his mother and father, who are pushy at heart, decide they need to be cooler. It all escalates horribly, via slapstick and farce, until sense prevails -- Nicolette Jones Sunday Times

Glowing with Pete Johnson's trademark warmth and good humour, this is a not to be missed novel with wickedly sharp, perfectly timed writing Droplets of Ink Very funny ... Reminded me very much of The Secret Diary of Adrian Mole Madhouse Family Reviews
