Two brothers, Damian and Anthony, are unwittingly caught up in a train robbery during Britain's countdown to joining 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 too. Pizzas or World Peace, what would you choose?

Review quote

'It's hard to imagine the person who wouldn't enjoy it.' -- The Guardian 'Frank Cottrell Boyce's first novel has all the classic ingredients to delight children, but adds the anguish of bereavement to its irresistible comic adventure.' -- The Times

About Frank Cottrell-Boyce

Frank Cottrell Boyce's first book, Millions, won the 2004 Carnegie Medal and was shortlisted for the Guardian Children's Fiction Prize. His books Framed and Cosmic were both shortlisted for the Carnegie Medal. Frank is an accomplished, successful and well-known screen and television writer. He lives with his family in Liverpool. Stephen Tompkinson was born in Stockton-on-Tees. His Grandad (whom Stephen describes as 'a comic genius') inspired him to take up acting. He attended the Central Drama School, which he left at the age of 23 and he has rarely been out of work since. Stephen has worked on-stage, in radio, television and, most recently, on the big screen.
