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.

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

A superb parable, beautifully read.

This is a beautifully read reflection on saints and... money. Full of humour and wisdom, this is a tale to be treasured. The narration is excellent.

My 10 year old loves this

Fun listen, with lovely heart warming moments. My son really enjoyed this book. Ok for adults as well.
