A boy travels to an alternate world where kids get to choose their own parents in this zany, internationally bestselling adventure, which combines the be-careful-what-you-wish-for humor of The Chocolate Touch with the classic appeal of Roald Dahl. Barry Bennett is sick of his parents. They’re boring, they’re too strict, and it’s their fault his name is Barry. So he makes a wish for better ones—and is whisked away to the Parent Agency, where kids get to pick out their perfect parents. For Barry, this seems like a dream come true. But as he’s about to discover, choosing a new mom and dad isn’t as simple as it sounds… The Parent Agency is the first children’s book by British author and comedian David Baddiel, and it includes illustrations by Roald Dahl Funny Prize–winning artist Jim Field.

Three hilarious novels of heart, humour and wishes gone wrong, from the new star of childrenâe(tm)s books - by award-winning and bestselling author, David Baddiel. Illustrated by Jim Field - winner of the Roald Dahl Funny Prize. THE PARENT AGENCY: Barry said, a third time, âeoeI wish I had better parents!âe And then suddenly the entire room started to shakeâe¦ Barry Bennett hates being called Barry. In fact itâe(tm)s number 2 on the list of things he blames his parents for, along with 1) âe~being boringâe(tm) and 3) âe~always being tiredâe(tm). But there is a world, not far from this one, where parents donâe(tm)t have children. Thatâe(tm)s far too random for something so big and important. In this world, children are allowed to choose their parents. For Barry Bennett, this world seems like a dream come true. Only things turn out to be not quite that simpleâe¦ THE PERSON CONTROLLER: Fred and Ellie are twins. But not identical (because that's impossible for a boy and a girl). They do like all the same things, though. Especially video games. Which they are very good at. They aren't that good, however, at much else âe" like, for example, football, or dealing with the school bullies. Then, they meet the Mystery Man, who sends them a video game controller, which doesn't look like any other controller they've ever seen. And it doesn't control any of their usual games. When the twins find out what it does control, though, it seems like the answer to all their problems. And the key to all their wildest dreams. At least it seems like thatâe¦ ANIMALCOLM: Malcolm doesnâe(tm)t like animals. Which is a problem because his family love them. Their house is full of pets. What the house is NOT full of is stuff Malcolm likes. Such as the laptop he wanted for his birthday. The only bright spot on the horizon is the Year 6 school trip, until Malcolm realizes itâe(tm)s heading toâe¦oh no. The farm. Over the next days, Malcolm changes. He learns a lot about animals. More, in many ways, than he would like. He learns what itâe(tm)s really like to be an animalâe¦ It does make him think differently. And speak differently. And eat differently. But will he end up the same as he was before? Because sometimes the hardest thing to become isâe¦ yourself.

Mal ganz ehrlich: Welcher Neunjährige wünscht sich nicht ab und zu bessere Eltern? Barry jedenfalls schon. Seine Eltern sind nämlich nicht nur langweilig, arm und immer müde – sie haben ihn auch noch Barry genannt, was nun wirklich unverzeihlich ist. Als das Unglaubliche geschieht und Barry in eine Welt katapultiert wird, in der sich Kinder ihre Eltern aussuchen können, will er es dann wissen: wie es ist, so richtig reiche Eltern zu haben (wie die Scheffel-Reibachs) oder berühmte und glamouröse (wie das Starduo Vlassorina). Dass das Experiment "Barry sucht die Supereltern" seine Tücken hat, dämmert ihm zwar bald, aber so schnell kommt Barry aus der Nummer nicht raus ...

To any professional concerned with exceptional children, it would be the greatest understatement to say that the courts and legislatures have had a tremendous impact on the field of speeial education. Especially in the last decade, a flood of litigation filed to develop and define the right to education of previously unserved handicapped children has left no special education teacher, school adminis trator, nurse, educational psychologist, or pediatrician unaffected-either be cause these professionals are daily called upon to help children, or because they may come forward as witnesses on behalf of children who are the subjects of special education meetings, individualized education programs, placement hear ings, or judicial proceedings. Thus, for these people, questions regarding a student's legal rights are immediate and pervasive. This book developed out of the need to provide nonlegal professionals with a lawyer's view of the huge body of court cases and federal laws and regulations that affect their practice as well as their students and clients. An introductory chapter provides the historical basis of the current interface between law and special education. The Education for All Handicapped Children Act of 1975 and Sec tion 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, and their regulations promulgated in 1977, are the major national laws in the field ~nd are therefore described in Chapters 2 and 3.

Pediatric Life Care Planning and Case Management provides a comprehensive and unique reference that goes beyond the clinical discussion to include legal and financial aspects, life expectancy data, and assistive technology. It also includes case samples of actual plans related to specific conditions. The book is divided into five parts: Normal Growth and Development of Children describes the normal growth and development and the cognitive and psychosocial development of children. The Roles of the Life Care Plan Team details the roles of members of a life care plan team, from the pediatric care manager and life care planner to the vocational rehabilitation consultant, among others. Chronic Conditions and Disability States offers guidelines for life care planning for children with a wide range of chronic health conditions and disabilities, including traumatic injuries and organ transplants. Forensic Considerations examines life care planning in legal cases, life expectancy issues, and life care plan foundation strategies and requirements. Special Issues discusses assistive technology, medical homes, funding sources, and ethical issues in caring for children with special needs—including a mother’s perspective on caring for her son. With contributions from highly respected professionals, this text provides a guide for life care planners, health-care professionals, education specialists, insurance decision makers, attorneys, and families who work with children with special health-care needs.
