Publisher's Summary

A hilarious, touching and extraordinary new fable from the author of The Boy in the Dress and Mr Stink.
Joe has a lot of reasons to be happy. About a billion of them, in fact. You see, Joe's rich. Really, really rich. Joe's got his own bowling alley, his own cinema, even his own butler who is also an orang-utan. He's the wealthiest 12-year-old in the land.
But Joe isn't happy. Why not? Because he's got a billion pounds… and not a single friend. But then someone comes along, someone who likes Joe for Joe, not for his money. The problem is, Joe's about to learn that when money is involved, nothing is what it seems.
The best things in life are free, they say – and if Joe's not careful, he's going to lose them all….

Would you listen to Billionaire Boy again? Why?

Its a great book life lesson for adults and kids. Even though its a children book I enjoyed it.

The son learned no money or fancy stuff or all the candy and toys can make you happy. Joe learned the lesson of friendship, I was ticked off when she curse at his friend for the girl. Lol poor child thought he was in love :)

Joe's father worked hard to created a successful business that changed him. He didnt give his son much attention and also dating girls half his ae that would never love him ( with a fat man like that don't wrong the young chick to hang with him for his money). The girl he claim was Joe's new step mother was STUPID like a blond.

Joe's new friend he met at school was very genuine and true. Nice lad :)

Both Joe and his dad learned a life lesson.


What did you like best about this story?

I liked it had a life lesson. Showed the value of friend ship and showed when you have money you tend to draw lots of fake people close to you. Also learned that money cant buy real friends.


What does David Walliams bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

The accent was awesome I am not from UK but that British accent was great for me. The way she spoke could let you know just how fat Joe and his dad was lol


Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

yea i cried a little. Laugh at the Indian shop keeper accent.


Any additional comments?

OK

David Williams books are one of my family's mainstays. We started with Mr. Stink, and the kids loved it, so they were excited to hear more. This was not one of our favorites though. Although the book had the same formula as the others, with a great deal of emotional struggles, and dismissive parenting, the book just did not add up. It just seemed to miss the magic of the others. If this is the first book of his you read, give another one a try. His others are definitely better. If you are a seasoned reader of David Williams, this book will be a slight disappointment.
