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….

Hard to reach the top but easy to reach the bottom
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.
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.
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
yea i cried a little. Laugh at the Indian shop keeper accent.
