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.

Damian's voice leaps off the page and into your heart. Millions is fresh, funny, touching and wise.
