Too Small To Fail

Written by Morris Gleitzman

Too Small To Fail Synopsis

1 boy. 1 girl. 1 camel. Squillions of dollars. A plan that can't fail. Or can it? Oliver's parents own a bank. This makes them very rich, very important and very busy. Oliver, on the other hand, is terrible at maths and aspires to nothing more than owning the puppy that he frequently visits at his local pet shop. When a mysterious woman buys the puppy and threatens to harm it if Oliver can't return her thousand of dollars (unfortunately, Oliver's parents seem to have misplaced her life savings. Something to do with some stuff on the news.) Oliver hatches a plan which will take him further than he ever imagined...

Too Small To Fail Press Reviews

Morris Gleitzman gives form to human faith - gives it a clear sweet voice and a gaze of perfect directness. His story hovers above the fathomless atrocities it recounts, speaking the truth simply, to devastating effect. 'Once' and 'Then' are books for all ages and all times * Meg Rosoff, author of How I Live Now * Morris Gleitzman has a rare gift for writing very funny stories and an even rarer gift of wrapping very serious stories inside them * The Guardian *
