Product description


There is a moral here for any parent who frets about a child's progress at school . . . Children who read it won't be turned into hostile monsters; they'll chortle away, feel better about themselves and have a lot of jokes to tell you ― The Sunday Times

Johnson's comic romp through a miserable school year in the life of almost 13-year-old Louis touches all the real bases of adolescent boys' lives: girls, parents, TV, comedy ―
TES Published On: 2003-06-04

Johnson addresses big issues in a frank manner and with a light touch resulting in a book that both children and parents should read -- Wendy Cooling ―
Junior Education Published On: 2003-05-20

Written with humour and plenty of attitude, this witty book firmly puts the power in the hands of the children ―
Junior Published On: 2003-04-14

From the Inside Flap

a boy who is fed up with his hyper-competitive parents.<br><br>Moving to a new neighbourhood and a new school, Louis’s parents become ultra-competitive parents, wanting him and his brother to get straight As at school and join all sorts of after-school clubs and activities like the other kids in the neighbourhood. Suddenly Louis’s life is no longer his own. Then he meets Maddy, who claims to have trained her parents to ignore her. But does Louis really want to be ignored?
