Acclaimed author David Baddiel delivers an epic wish-fulfilment adventure for every child…..and for the child in everyone.
Barry Bennett hates being called Barry. In fact it’s his number 2 on the list of things he blames his parents for, along with 1) ‘being boring’ and 3) ‘always being tired’.
But there is a world, not far from this one, where parents don’t have children. No. That’s far too random for something so big and important. In this world, children are allowed to choose their parents.
For Barry bennett, finding himself suddenly inside this world seems like a dream come true. only things turn out to be not quite so simple…
I really enjoyed this book. I maybe wouldn’t have chosen it for myself in the shops but I’m glad I got the opportunity to read it, as it is quite funny. It didn’t take me long to read as it is an easy read. It’s a fun book and a great story. It doesn’t have pictures through the book but at the start, there are two pages full of the cast, which I thought was a really nice idea.
In the last week I have read half of the book, the start of the book was a bit boring but as I got through 7 pages it got better. There is a kid called Barry Bennett and he hates being called Barry and he loves to blame things on people. But his world is not very simple because of his parents. I would give this book a 8/10 because the first 7 pages. It is very humorous (funny) I would pick this in a shop because it’s got a bright cover and would stand out on the shelf. To finish this I just want to say THANK YOU for giving me a chance to read it.
So there you have it. A good book all around and we would both recommend it.
