Monte Montgomery and Patricia Storms have teamed up to create a masterpiece (in my 12-year old opinion). Kid Confidential: An Insider's Guide to Grown-ups was very informative, giving me insights into the lives of grown-ups. For example, there is whole chapter devoted to adult talk and how to decode this talk. So when parents say, "At this particular juncture in time, I need you to reiterate how you negatively impacted that exponential child in the next residence over", they are actually saying, "Now tell me what you did to that big neighbour of ours". Other chapters include pranks to play on substitute teachers, how to negotiate a higher allowance without getting your parents suspicious, and ways to spy on parents without them noticing.
Montgomery's writing is humourous and interesting. It paired perfectly with Storms' funny illustrations. This book is just right for kids 9-13 who enjoy practical jokes or are trying to understand grown-ups for their own gain. I personally have discovered expert ways scam my parents--watch out, Mom and Dad!
