A Best Middle-Grade Book of 2017 by Kirkus Reviews

“[Dewey’s] string of triumphs will have readers cheering him on, rolling in the aisles, and wishing they could line up for consultations.” – Kirkus Reviews, Starred Review

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?
