My Review: Parents for Sale by Dr. Nicole Audet


This is a really cute story. It's about twins Luke and Lucy who have a dog named Pistachio. They love Pistachio they just don't like walking her in the rain or filling her bowls. Mom gets tired of doing it and puts a "DOG FOR SALE" Sign in the yard. This upsets the twins, so they plot to sell their parents instead. The parents are going to the store and ask the twins if they want to go, they say no so they can set their plan into action. They put a PARENTS FOR SALE sign in the yard and take the DOG FOR SALE sign down.
Some of the neighbor kids come and want to buy the parents but don't have enough money, one family of kids come by wanting to trade their parents, and one family of kids come by wanting to rent the parents. Luke and Lucy say no to all 3. Then a Fairy comes, she says she is the Orphan Children's Fairy and wants to buy the parents. She gives the kids $300 for the parents and the kids agree to sell them. As soon as they do the Fairy turns into a wicked witch, and tells the kids she is having their parents for dinner that night. The kids, Pistachio, and the neighbor children all have to save the parents.
  This is a great story I would say for children 7 to 10 years old. I was given a copy of this book for my honest review.
