The Lovereading4Kids comment
Winner of the 2004 CILIP Carnegie Medal When a bag stuffed full of money falls out of a train and into their camp, Damian and Anthony are suddenly rich. Very, very rich, to be precise. But, there is a problem. They only have a few days in which to spend the money. When the Euro arrives, it’ll be worthless. A thrilling story about the real value of money but Millions is more than an adventure as the boys have recently lost their mother and their search for happiness is tinged with the sadness that, however much money they have, they’ll never be able bring her back.

Millions by Frank Cottrell Boyce
Frank Cottrell Boyce's story, Millions - the tale of a not-so-great train robbery - is an absolute treasure!
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?
Includes bonus material and discussion questions from Frank Cottrell Boyce, and illustrations by Steven Lenton.
Damian's voice leaps off the page and into your heart. Millions is fresh, funny, touching and wise. The Times
Pure gold Scotsman Written with charm and humour, this is a touching, absorbing oddity of a book about love, grief, avarice and generosity. Sunday Times
