A hilarious, touching and extraordinary new fable from David Walliams, number one bestseller and one of the fastest growing children's author across the globe. 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 orangutan. He's the wealthiest twelve-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...

      The book billionaire boy is in my opinion I think that this is a great book and it has pinches of humour everywhere. This book is about Joe spud who was once son of a poor father who makes loo rolls but than after awhile he thinks of an amazing idea, he is than extremely rich and has everything you could ever imagine and want. Joe spud just wants to be a normal kid and live like one too than he can. He thinks money can solve everything and makes everybody happy but he realises it’s not money .....
