Reviewed by Michelle Robertson for Readers' Favorite

The Clark siblings are twins and they have a beautiful golden retriever named Pistachio as their family pet. Although they love to see their dog do tricks and respond to them when they bribe her with treats, they don't like the responsibilities that come with caring for a dog such as walking, feeding, and watering. When their parents have to walk their dog in the rain, they decide they have had enough and tell the twins they must sell their dog. Mr. and Mrs. Clark make a "Dog for Sale" sign, place it in the yard, and proceed on their daily errands to the grocery store. Not happy with this decision to sell their beloved pet, the twins replace the sign with "Parents for Sale". Can the twins sell their parents and keep their beloved pet dog Pistachio?

Parents for Sale by Dr. Nicole Audet is a charming and amusing children's story offering a unique type of life lesson learning, and enticing the imagination of its young reading audience. Dr. Nicole Audet has created a tale containing a lesson within, but with a twist in the plot only a youthful mind could fully understand and appreciate. The imagination of a child is a powerful and unique attribute. The mind of a child is often unpredictable and excited by the unseen or magical elements that make thinking, creating, and learning fun. The author adjusts her writing to depict what the mind of a child would imagine. For example, as an adult reads and starts to comprehend the story and its plot, the adult mind would assume the story and its message would end with that life lesson being played out in a learning experience, such as a punishment or something of the like, but in fact it does just the opposite. The story leans towards a happier ending in the way a child would imagine it. This is exactly why the story is brilliant and perfect for young readers; they can absolutely relate its concepts, emotions, and imaginative text.

Parents for Sale is a cute early chapter book about twins who rebel when their parents threaten to sell their dog because they don't take care of him. The twins decide to sell their parents instead. The offers start rolling in, but no offer is quite right.

I read this story to my almost 5-year-old son and he enjoyed the silliness of the story. He laughed heartily and asked me to read it again.

From an adult perspective, I was hoping for more of a valuable lesson about being responsible for pets and respectful to parents. The twist at the end of the book took me by surprise, but my son didn't skip a beat :)

Regardless of our divided opinion, my son and I had a lovely time sitting together reading and laughing. That is precious and I thank Nicole Audet for providing a story that he enjoyed!
