Millions

Written by Frank Cottrell Boyce

Illustrated by Steven Lenton

Millions Synopsis

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? This edition of the Carnegie Medal-winning Millions includes bonus material and discussion questions from Frank Cottrell Boyce, and inside and cover illustrations by Steven Lenton.

Millions Press Reviews

Written with charm and humour, this is a touching, absorbing oddity of a book about love, grief, avarice and generosity. * Sunday Times * Pure gold * Scotsman * Deliciously funny * Guardian * Damian's voice leaps off the page and into your heart. Millions is fresh, funny, touching and wise. * The Times *
