Waterstones Says

Wonderfully funny and bursting with character and comic set pieces, Boyce’s heist romp features two brothers who accidentally find themselves with a rather large amount of stolen money. Dramatising the hopes, dreams, flaws and quirks of children with exuberance and honesty, Millions is solid gold from start to finish.

Frank Cottrell Boyce's Millions is the tale of a not-so-great train robbery.

Two brothers, Damian and Anthony, are unwittingly caught up in a train robbery during Britain's countdown to joining 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 too.

Pizzas or World Peace - what would you choose?

This edition features fantastic cover artwork from the incredible Steven Lenton.

“Laugh out loud book for 8+ year olds”

I bought this book for my 8 year old who is a good reader but very hard to engage in reading. Wonderfully unpredictable plot, the main four characters are wonderfully imperfect in an endearing way. The number of times... More
