Description

Heart-achingly funny, touching and brilliantly clever, Millions is a fantastic adventure about two boys, one miracle and a million choices.

Brothers Damian and Anthony didn't mean to get caught up in a botched train robbery. But what would you do if a massive bag of cash dropped from the sky and you had only a few days to spend it before it became worthless? Buy a million pizzas? End world poverty? Not such an easy decision, is it? The boys soon find out that being rich is a mug's game. Not only is the clock ticking, the bank robbers want their money back . . .

This edition of Frank Cottrell-Boyce's Carnegie Medal-winning Millions features fantastic cover artwork from the brilliant Steven Lenton.

Millions is a major film directed by Oscar-winner Danny Boyle.

Review quote

Written with charm and humour, this is a touching, absorbing oddity of a book about love, grief, avarice and generosity. * Sunday Times * Pure gold * Scotsman * Deliciously funny * Guardian * Damian's voice leaps off the page and into your heart. Millions is fresh, funny, touching and wise. * The Times *
