Frank Cottrell Boyce's story, Millions, is the tale of a not-so-great train robbery. Read aloud by actor Stephen Tompkinson, this Carnegie Medal-winning story is an absolute treasure!
Two brothers, Anthony and Damien, are unwittingly caught up in a train robbery during Britain's countdown to join 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.
Pizzas or World Peace, what would you choose?
