This book was selected by Marcus Sedgwick, July 2010 Guest Editor, as: "Another book I would be very proud to have written - I think comic writing is the hardest thing to do well, and this book is not only funny, it's a very happy book too, and we could all do with a few more of those in the world."

It will make you laugh and cry.;Two bothers, Damian and Anthony, are unwittingly caught up in a train robbery during Britain's countdown to join the Euro.

For not only is the clock ticking - the bungling bank robbers are closing in.....Pizzas or World Peace, what would you choose?
