Five Go Parenting: A Review

When the Famous Five solve the case that gets their criminal cousin  Rupert and his wife sent to jail, the horrifying news is broken to them that they are now the next-of-kin for Rupert’s baby daughter. The book relates their parenting experiences and mishaps as baby Lily’s arrival turns their world upside down.

Unlike Five Go Gluten Free, which missed this mark, this satire of parenting, including the competitive world of London-middle-class-parenting, was an absorbing and funny read. I think it probably would be even funnier to anyone who is a parent and has experienced first hand the horrors of learning-on-the-job how to look after a baby. At £7.99, this isn’t cheap (though only £3.99 for the e-book), but if you like(d) the Famous Five books and have some experience of babies, you’ll probably enjoy this.
