Publisher's Summary

Here's a bittersweet story about the perils and pleasures of pounds and pennies. It will make you laugh and cry.

Two bothers, Damian and Anthony, are unwittingly caught up in a train robbery during Britain's countdown to join the Euro. Suddenly finding themselves with a vast amount of cash, the boys have just one glorious, appalling dilemma - how to spend it in the few days before it becomes worthless. Torn between the vices of buying a million pizzas and the virtues of ending world poverty, the boys soon discover that being rich is a mug's game. For not only is the clock ticking - the bungling bank robbers are closing in.

Pizzas or World Peace, what would you choose?

    "Guaranteed laughs"

    Just finished listening to this on a long, cross country journey with my children (aged 11 and 9). A great story that had us laughing for beginning to end. Beautifully written and Stephen Thompkinson really brings it to life.

    "brilliantly humorous and humane"



    This is young adult's fiction of the highest order, to such an extent that the category becomes irrelevant : this is just a wonderful book for teens and adults alike.



    Two boys find a bag of cash and get into a load of scrapes spending it. So far, so 'Shallow Grave'. There is plenty of warmth and humour here, but the way in which the writer explores much deeper themes lifts this to a completely different standard to almost all of his peers ( Louis Sacher is as good, but no better than FCB, and this is high praise indeed). The protagonisg is coping with the loss of his mother, a developing relationship with his father, a new school and the small matter of regular visions of saints. The skill with which these are developed without being trivialised or, thankfully, overly sentimentalised is remarkable.



    This is a wonderful book for young teens, but truthfully only that smarter ones will love it ( I'm a teacher, and have used it in class several times; the humour is lost on a lot of kids, but those on the same wavelength as the author will absolutely adore it). Adults would do well not to dismiss it out of hand: it is beautifully crafted and genuinely engaging.



    The narration is of the highest standard as well. Full marks all round, and if by any chance FCB is reading this then a) thank you, and b) why are you reading this?

    "Rich!"

    The story has something for everyone. My boys, aged 8 and 10, laughed at the funny bits, and were gripped throughout. A thoroughly entertaining, touching clever story. highly recommend it
