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.

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.
