NEW BOOK AND CD PACK - A hilarious, touching and extraordinary new fable from David Walliams, number one bestseller and one of the fastest growing children's authors across the globe.

Joe has a lot of reasons to be happy. About a billion of them, in fact. You see, Joe's rich. Really, really rich. Joe's got his own bowling alley, his own cinema, even his own butler who is also an orangutan. He's the wealthiest twelve-year-old in the land.

But Joe isn't happy. Why not? Because he's got a billion pounds... and not a single friend. But then someone comes along, someone who likes Joe for Joe, not for his money. The problem is, Joe's about to learn that when money is involved, nothing is what it seems.

The best things in life are free, they say - and if Joe's not careful, he's going to lose them all...

At the beginning there is a list of what things he has, i liked this.  I like the characters and the main character, Joe Spud, learnt some important things.  It is about friendship and i liked this.  I loved reading this book, it made me smile.

Billionaire Boy is a heartwarming story of how Joe, the boy who has absolutely anything he wants, all that is apart from a friend. Ridiculed in school with thanks to his self made millionaire father and his 'Bumfresh' products, Joe just wants to be normal. So when his birthday arrives he decided enough is enough and he wants to change schools, moving to the local school he gets to experience a normal childhood where no body knows who he is and meets Bob who wants to be his friend.

The two boys seem similar in many ways and despite their differences seem to be good for one another as friends but when new girl, Lauren appears on the scene their friendship doesn't take the strain and when Bob finds out that Joe paid the Bully's to leave him alone he decides Joe isn't who he thought he was.

Although my son is only about to turn 7 he is really enjoying reading the books by David Williams. This book is definitely aimed for the older audience with some of the language that is used in the writing compared to how my son talks in school. As I have been reading the book to him, I have found it necessary to replace certain words but that is my choice.
