Dewey Fairchild, Parent Problem Solver
Written by Lorri Horn
Publisher’s Synopsis: 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 a secretary, 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 talking one day, he faces 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?
Ages 9-12 | Publisher: Amberjack Publishing | August 8, 2017 | ISBN-13: 978-1944995164
About the Author
Lorri Horn is an educator and an author. She has a degree in English, a teaching credential, has been Nationally Board Certified, and has taught pubic school for over 14 years. She loves cheese (and wants it to be its own food group, which made working on a vegan book a challenge), humor, baking, books, and spending time with her family. Lorri’s background as a career schoolteacher and instructional leader make her especially sympathetic to the needs and perspectives of children, and this sensitivity features in her work as an author. Lorri blogs on her website, lorrihorn.com. Her work has appeared in The Los Angeles Times, The Huffington Post, Phi Delta Kappan, The College Board and Mayim’s Vegan Table. Lorri lives in California with her husband, son, and their dog, Wolfie.
About the Illustrator
Agnieszka Grochalska is an illustrator living and working in Warsaw, Poland. As a child she wanted to be an astronaut or a jet pilot. Eventually she changed her mind and dedicated her keen eye and steady hand to drawing precise and detailed compositions reminiscent of classical storybook illustrations.
She received a MFA in Graphic Arts in 2014, exploring traditional painting, printmaking, and sculpting along the way. Currently she works predominantly in digital medium, striving to make it look as natural as her works drawn traditionally. Her illustrative works were featured in group exhibitions both in Poland and abroad.
Agnieszka enjoys travel and cultural exchange with people from around the world, referencing those experiences in her works alongside the Slavic folklore of her homeland. When she isn’t drawing or traveling, you can find her exploring the worlds of fiction in books and story-driven games.
Agnieszka’s works can be viewed in her online portfolio at agroshka.com.

My grandson who is 10 will love this. He’s been saying to me that his parents think they know everything. 🙂
I used to get a huge kick out of characters like this when I was a kid. I think lots of kids today would enjoy it too. Thanks for the chance to win a copy.
I think handling an overactive parent would be hard. Maybe try giving them a gift of a book they would enjoy reading and then they would relax! I think this book has a lot of humor in it!
“Answer one or both of these questions: How would/do you handle an overactive parent? Why are you excited to win this book?” 1, Call a time-out. 2. I don’t know–I just am!
I’d like to win it
Try to reason with the parent although it would be difficult. Love this great giveaway which is perfect. Ideal for my grandsons.
Much in the same way as a child – divert attention in a calmer environment.
In it to WIN it! Thank You!
I am excited about this book because I think it’s cute and my kids would think it was a great read. Plus they would love to solve any parent issues/problems LOL
How to handle an overactive parent? Hh mm… Make them watch a movie with a snack. I pretty sure watching a movie would calm young and old.
I would’ve loved this book when I was a kid, so I know my daughter will now 🙂
I would handle an overactive parent by talking to them and trying to understand where they’re coming from and by telling them how I felt. The reason I am excited to win this book is because I know a child who would enjoy it. The book sounds like it deals with teaching kids about how to deal with problems with others in a humorous way and kids seem to like funny stores, so I think it would be well received by the child that I’d like to gift it to.
my kids are avid readers and are bugging for some new books! this looks right up their alley!
I think my daughter would love this book!
My son would really like this!

Wow, this book looks great !! I would love to read it with my son.
I would love to win this because I think my daughter would get a kick out of this story!
I loved books like this when I was younger and I know my son would very much enjoy reading this!
We would like to have this book because we enjoy discovering authors who are new to us.
My kiddo loves to read new and exciting stories. She would love this.
My granddaughter loves to read and never thinks she has enough books.
Overactive parents can really use encouragement because sometimes they are just worried. As a 30 yr. veteran retired teacher I have seen many overactive parents & a listening ear, patience, & love really helps.
I am super excited to win this book because I think that our family will get good use out of it!
I’m excited to win this book because my grandfathers name was Dewey abc also I think my son would like it
I would never tell a parent anything but maybe in a round about way, I’d direct them to a blog or book I’ve read about parenting.
This book looks so cute & fun. I think my nephew would love it.
Overactive parents are usually very stubborn in their ideas about being a parent but setting an example sometimes helps.
This is a good idea for a book. I would like to win this one for my granddaughters who are pretty good at handling their parents.
I am excited to win the book because it looks like a fun humorous read.
