A parent company is a single company that has a controlling interest in another company or companies. Barry likes football (especially if Lionel Messi's playing), James Bond and lists. He doesn't like his two sisters, who tease him mercilessly and get away with all sorts of meanness right under his parents' noses. All his mates have cool names and even cooler parents, and their tenth birthday parties were amazing. His family, on the other hand, just can't manage the simplest thing he asks of them. He knows they're not well off, and he doesn't blame them for that, exactly, but going up to double figures is a big deal and deep in his heart he really does feel they could make a bit more effort. Well, actually, a lot more effort. There is, of course, a happy ending (some readers may feel a happier one that Barry deserves) and while the moral of the story is somewhat transparent, the energy and enthusiasm of the story-telling compensate to a large extent. It's funny and silly, and will, at the very least, while away a wet afternoon. If you like funny, try books by the other David – Walliams, that is. He has a wild and zany humour that appeals to young readers. Bookbag enjoyed Billionaire Boy, Ratburger, Demon Dentist and especially The Boy in the Dress which is illustrated by the fabulous Quentin Blake. We've also enjoyed AniMalcolm by David Baddiel and Jim Field. For more from Badiel, try The Person Controller.
