My review about the parent agency
I'm not so sure about David Badddiel but he is actually funny
I would not recommend it to anyone I know because no one I know likes the stuff in the book
I liked the main character, Barry the best. I would definitely recommend this book.
The main character is fed up with his boring parents, so tries out some others!
Each chapter is a new set of parents to try. Each time something funny happens.
David Baddiel has the same characters in each of his books so you feel like you know them.
Definitely recommend, easy to read.

I can't believe that the whole book was a coma.
A funny book
I would say 100% on this book
This book is about a boy who hates his parents and made a list with all the things he blames his parents for. Then he has a chance to live with 5 sets of parents for one day each. He doesn't like any of them. When he wakes up he realised that he was in a coma in hospital.
when reading this book i thought about the minuscule amount of emotion and the wider range of joy and happiness. My favourite character in this fiction book was the main character of the story. In addition, this book caught my attention with the amount of action packed into the story. I would recommend this book as it is easy to read for all ages.
This is a fantastic book, because it's funny and very enjoyable
I love David Baddiel!

I really enjoyed it but I could guess what was going to happen next.
I liked all the things that Barry did in the story
I loved it because there was loads of twists. The characters were amazing and it was really funny. This is the second David Baddiel book I’ve read and it makes me want to read more.
Best book ever
This a good book with one major downfall- the end. i would definitly reccomend it to every one who likes adventure and comedy.
