Clever, charming and triumphantly uplifting, Walliams's latest work is as exciting as the ones that went before it, and only enhanced by his thoroughly entertaining narrative style.
A hilarious, touching and extraordinary new fable from the author of The Boy in the Dress and Mr Stink.
Joe has a lot of reasons to be happy. About a billion of them, in fact. You see, Joe's rich. Really, really rich. Joe's got his own bowling alley, his own cinema, even his own butler who is also an orang-utan. He's the wealthiest 12-year-old in the land.
But Joe isn't happy. Why not? Because he's got a billion pounds…and not a single friend. But then someone comes along, someone who likes Joe for Joe, not for his money. The problem is, Joe's about to learn that when money is involved, nothing is what it seems.
The best things in life are free, they say – and if Joe's not careful, he's going to lose them all….
"A triumphant mix of wit and warmth." (
Telegraph Books of the Year)
“guaranteed to appeal to youngsters… definitely another hit for Walliams." ( The Express)
