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

It was great!!!!

I thought this was such a great book! I love it how it's got a lot of saints in it. I thought the glass eyed man was a bit mean and scary 😒. I think the story was such a good idea 💡! It's so cliff hanging and it's very dramatic and scary(which I liked about the book 📚). I also loved how it includes money 💰, unlike any other story's.

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.
