Written by Pete Johnson

Moving to a new area and a new school, Louis is horrified to discover his parents changing into ultra-competitive parents, wanting him and his younger brother to get straight As at school and join all sorts of after-school clubs and activities like the other kids in the area. Suddenly Louis's life is no longer his own - until he meets Maddy, who claims to have trained her parents to ignore her- But does Louis really want to be ignored? A truly contemporary tale with characters kids will recognize instantly!

How To Train Your Parents Press Reviews

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 *
