Dewey Fairchild isn’t just good with parents, he’s great with them. He’s so good at handling parents that he’s built a thriving business out of it. He even has an assistant, Clara―a great alibi and an even better baker. Dewey settles the most troublesome of cases, from an overprotective mom who won’t let her child go to class on her own, to a dad who can’t stop picking his nose any chance he gets!
Dewey has no problem handling other people’s parents, but when he overhears his parents’ conversation, he discovers a challenge he never expected. Dewey can solve any problem parents may cause, but what will he do when the parents who are causing problems are his own?
“After all, as Horn puts it in this winning debut, ‘where you found kids, you always found parents who needed some assistance to be, shall we say, their best selves.’ Amen to that.” -Starred Kirkus Review
