A hilarious, touching and extraordinary new fable from David Walliams, number one bestseller and one of the fastest growing children's author 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.
Yes, Joe has absolutely everything he could possibly want. But there's just one thing he really needs: a friend...

This is an amazing story about a boy called Joe who's dad is Mr Spud the owner of Bum Fresh the special toilet paper company!  His dad is convinced you can do everything with money.  All that Joe wants is a friend and a normal life.  You may think that being the son or daughter of a billionaire would be great but money cant buy everything is the moral of this story!

This story is brilliantly written and engaged myself ,as an adult,
alongside a key stage one and key stage two child. We couldn’t wait to read the next chapter each day. The illustrations are fab and David Walliam’s humour is just brilliant. We would all recommend this book.

We loved this story. Another absolutely fantastic book by David Walliams!
Joe is a very very rich child, his dad owns bun fresh and luxurious toilet paper firm. 
Joes dad thinks money is the answer to everything but Joe knows different. All he wants his a proper friend. 
We loved following Joe’s adventures though school as he tries to live a normal life style. 
My son is a huge Raj fan and it’s good to see he was a big character in this book!

I got this book on my birthday and it is awesome and I would really really recommend you to read it. I would like to be Joe Spud but I wouldn't have any friends to play with on the race track or on the water slide in the back garden. It is hilarious and i just couldn't put the book down.If David Walliams is reading this review please do not stop making books you are amazing at writing books!!!!!  If you want  to read the  books from the best author in the universe, read the novels from David Walliams that is my opinion.

I read this with both of my Grandaughters. We all love the story and also it shows that money is not everything and all we need in our lives is people who love us for who we are. 
Great lesson in life as well as a fantastic read.

Wow just wow. From the gorgeous illustrations like Roald Dahl to the big characters all through the book. When you read it you can visualise it as if it was a tv show. So we’ll written, I hope I can make books like him one day!

My favourite character is Joe because he is the main person. He goes through a lot of hard things because of his size and he is also so rich. He gets bullied at school. Joe thought he had found a best friend called Bob but Bob left him when he found out Joe had been paying bullies to be nice to him. I liked that Joe was a billionair because he could have whatever he wanted. I disliked the book because when he was racing his cart he crashed it because he wanted friends to race with him. I really enjoyed reading this book and would recommend it to anyone else to read.

David Walliams is an extremely talented writer. I had never read any of his books before, so this was the first. It is an excellent book, and it draws the reader in making them never want to put it down. I really enjoyed it, and recommend it to anybody who likes a laugh and a joke, and loves a good book.

This book is great! It gripped me and I got into the story! It's about a boy called Joe who is ridiculously rich, (thanks to Bumfresh Toilet Paper) but all he wants is a friend. His father tries to buy him a friend, but all Joe wants a real friend. It's a great story and it tells kids that money can't buy everything.

I read the book before I watched it on TV. I am a big fan of David Walliams he is so funny on the tv and his books are the same.
The book is about a boy who becomes rich because his dad makes a lot of money with his job. I really enjoyed the book and the programme it was turned into. Anybody who likes a laugh should read this or any of his other books.
I think if I had lots of money I wouldn't tell nobody as it makes people like you for being rich but not for you.

David Williams writes amazing stories and makes them funny but at the same time makes you stop and think. Joe is the little boy the story is based around and he is the son on a billionaire. Joe finds it hard to makes friends, he has everything he possible needs but no friends. His father thinks money can fix everything but we soon learn it can’t.

I saw this on Tv before I read the book. The book is so much better. It's about a boy called Joe who's dad becomes a billionaire. He has the same struggles as a regular kid. There are a few rude bits in this book I found embarrassing when reading to my teachers but I really enjoyed it. The whole point of the story is that money does not buy happiness. It's a great book, I love David Walliams.

We both enjoyed the story, but there was a part in the book, (luckily i was reading at the time) Where they used a word that i think personally shouldnt be in a childs book the word S##G, Other than that one word we both really enjoyed the book the characters was very funny and lovely to read of a true friendship, not one built on the fact he has lots of money. Raj is also very funny in the books has he is in all David walliams books.

I read this to my five year old son. The language and general toilet humour within the story held him captivated, and Walliams' story telling made bedtime story reading a pleasant and interesting experience. We will be reading more of his books!
