He is the only boy in his entire Welsh town, so forget about playing soccer.
His best friends are two pet chickens.
His family owns the town's only gas station/coffee house: their pies are to die for, but profits are in the hole.
Criminal instincts run in his family: his sister is a mastermind-in-training, and the tax men are after his father for questioning.
And one more small thing about nine-year-old Dylan: the crime of the century has just fallen into his lap.
With the same easy mix of wit, warmth, and wonder that made his debut novel, Millions, an award-winning international best seller, Frank Cottrell Boyce tells the story of a boy who reminds an entire town of the power of art.

This is such a fun book! Jason Hughes brings it to life with his wonderful Welsh accent and the perfect sense of humour! You find yourself chuckling along with the story!
We listened to this book on a car ride and loved it. My son couldn't wait to continue after ride breaks. We all enjoyed it. The narration and story were great.
