Cute and clever

My nine year old son really enjoyed this book. Louis the Laff moves from his old neighborhood to a new stuffy "upper-crust" neighborhood where he doesn't fit in. Soon his parents are turning into the Stepford Parents, wanting him to become the super achiever that his peers are. Louis has his own ideas about that. And his new friend instructs him how to train his parents...

AMAZING<br />OMG <br />SO GOOD<br />INCREDIBLE<br />BEST STORY EVER!

I am Amelie Brindley and I flummoppéd madly! flummopped is an English word that only the top 0.5% of English people should know, it isn't in dictionaries because people who make dictionaries don't know the word. I love flummopps because it's always a good flummoppé when I'm bejourínêd.
fartsereex people don't enjoy flummopps. BTW I'm 9 years old but I'm in top 0.5% of smart people in England.

Brilliant

Amazing, Pete Johnson is the BEST author - the only thing I find a little annoying is that all of his audio books cost a lot of money - but apart from that, probably the best audio book I've ever heard! :)

great book for a long car journey

The kids found this hilarious as it was very relatable to them. Also a good listen for us adults alike. we will be downloading the next books for future journeys.
