I like this book because it's a very interesting story. My favourite characters are The Sisterly Entity/The Sectary Entity who are Barry's sisters. in this book, Barry Bennett wished he had better parents because he thought that they were boring. When he stormed off to his room he was whisked of into another world. There Parents don't just have children but the children choose their parents. Barry finds this very exciting but things turn out to be as simple as he thought...

The Parent Agency is about a boy called Barry. He hates his name and one day wishes he had better parents. He somehow gets to a world where children get to pick their parents. Everything is perfect, or so it seems.....

I loved this book it was funny and makes you think about how lucky you are. For example Barry wanted new parents but then he realised that he didn't want to anymore for he missed them.

Enjoyed

I thought it was extremely funny, as well as creative. Barry gets transported to a world, where parents are allowed to choose their children. I would recommend this book to people who like funny adventures and weird and magical places in another dimension.
