I looked forward to reading this book as I had enjoyed 'The Tent The bucket and me', so much. There is no comparison. The afor mentioned book is probably one of the funniest books I have ever read, but ,How to bring up your parents, I found was plain silly in parts. 'The tent the bucket and me ' has pride of place on my bookshelf as it never fails to make me laugh. :How to bring up your parents is currently sitting in a carrier bag waiting for dispatch to the charity shop.
