But Joe isnt happy. Why not? Because hes 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, Joes about to learn that when money is involved, nothing is what it seems.
The best things in life are free, they say – and if Joes not careful, hes going to lose them all…
David Walliams talks about his first musical Billionaire Boy
Billionaire boy was very fun to read! It is so funny. In my opinion, you should definitely read. This fictional book was a mind blower it was hard not to cry at the part where he reunites with his father and have his house taken from under his nose. My favourite character is Joe because he is kind and thoughtful.
