"[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?

Editorial Reviews

"Dewey Fairchild: Parent Problem Solver was very different. Most books with this kind of concept of someone giving advice to other people usually aren't like this. Most books like that are about parents giving advice to help other parents with their kids and sometimes even people with their pets! However, I have never read a book with a kid giving advice to other kids to help solve their parents' problems! Oh, how the tables have turned! That has to be one of the most clever ideas for a book I have ever seen! The best part is that the outcome was so amazing! I loved the plot twist, the characters, and the light moments of comedy throughout the story. I also love how, within the whole concept, it still stayed a children's book. Most books with this concept of advice and solving problems aren't generally for kids. This one, however, stayed kid-friendly and interesting enough for kids to want to read it. Overall, it was a great book!" - Reviewed By: Farrah - Age 10
