Parents for Sale, a Juvenile Fiction by Dr Nicole Audet

About the Book

A 5 stars Readers’ Favorite book – Two children invent a scheme to sell their parents in order to keep their dog in the new children’s book by author Dr. Nicole Audet, “Parents for Sale” (published by AuthorHouse).

 In this new 44-page, color-illustrated chapter-book, the Clark family encounters a dilemma. Twins Luke and Lucy don’t take care of their dog, Pistachio, as they had promised their parents they would. One day, their mom threatens to sell the dog. A few hours later, when Luke and Lucy’s parents go to the store, the twins concoct a plan to get rid of their parents, who could take Pistachio away from them forever.

 As the story progresses, three groups of children from different families in the twins’ neighborhood approach Luke and Lucy with offers to buy, rent or trade the twins’ parents for various reasons. Each offer Luke and Lucy receive doesn’t seem worth it, so they decline. But one offer is better than others. A beautiful fairy comes to their door, offering to buy the twins’ parents for $300 and send them to look after orphaned children.

 The deal sounds great to Luke and Lucy; they accept. But just as they agree to the sale, the fairy changes into her true form – a wicked witch with plans to turn the twins’ mom and dad into a stew. The twins try to renegotiate the deal and save their parents from the hungry witch, but to no avail. As they fight with the witch on her magic broom, Pistachio attempts to save the day.

 Will Pistachio save the Clark family from their demise? Readers will find out the answer to this and other questions in this tale of morality and responsibility.
