The Most Impossible Parents by Brian Patten

Ben and Mary have got an embarrassing problem, their parents - they're impossible! Ben and Mary's parents are a total embarrassment, whether they're at school for parents' day or at home wanting to become green. And now Mr Norm has entered a poetry competition and claims he's won - surely that's impossible!
