Summary

When Louis' parents are forced to swap roles, there is total chaos. Dad serves up meals no one can eat, messes up all the laundry and, worst of all, decides Louis is his new best friend. But you can't hang out with your dad, can you?

Louis decides that dads just can't be mums - but then he's in for a huge surprise. The latest hilarious instalment of Louis the Laugh's best-selling adventures.

Critic reviews

"Louis the Laugh, who readers may have met before in How to Train Your Parents, flunks exams and wants to be a comedian. In My Parents Are out of Control, his mother and father, who are pushy at heart, decide they need to be cooler. It all escalates horribly, via slapstick and farce, until sense prevails." (Nicolette Jones, Sunday Times)
"Glowing with Pete Johnson's trademark warmth and good humour, this is a not to be missed novel with wickedly sharp, perfectly timed writing." (Droplets of Ink)
"Very funny.... Reminded me very much of The Secret Diary of Adrian Mole." (Madhouse Family Reviews)
