"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)
The hilarious sequel to HOW TO TRAIN YOUR PARENTS, shortlisted for the Roald Dahl Funny Prize.See all Product Description

Twelve-year-old Louis is a comedian, he's excellent at telling jokes and constantly makes everyone around him collapse in fits of laughter. Everything's going great until his parents start revisiting their youth, using words like "safe" and "wicked" and wearing clothes a couple of decades too young for them. I'm sure we all agree that would be an absolute nightmare! Louis has to try and put a stop to this before his own reputation is destroyed - but how?!
Louis is a larger than life protagonist, one I'm sure lots of kids will identify with and wish they could be friends with. He's easy going and maybe a big too smart-mouthed for his own good, as he often finds himself in sticky situations with teachers! He's the kind of boy I would have been friends with when I was little, someone fun and who doesn't take life too seriously.
I really, really enjoyed this book. I love books for younger readers that are funny - I don't think there's anything better than kids reading a book that will make them laugh. Pete Johnson has written a great book here and I'm glad I have it a read. Obviously I'll now have to get a copy of the first book in the series to catch up with Louis and his comedy adventures.
this book is about a boy named louis and how he is so enoyed about his embarssing parents...
Really - add to your cart and pay and read it now! (I am not responsible if your head explodes with laughter!) Hope Pete Johnson writes another Louis book soon.
