WINNER OF THE 2005 CARNEGIE MEDAL 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? Includes bonus material and discussion questions from Frank Cottrell Boyce, and illustrations by Steven Lenton.
