Two bothers, Damian and Anthony, 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?Two bothers, Damian and Anthony, are unwittingly caught up in a train robbery during Britain's countdown to join the Euro.

Books reviews
Shou
I love, love, love this book and re-read it regularly! Like C.S. Lewis' Chronicles of Narnia, it is a children's book that speaks to adults. I have the print book and the movie. I gave this edition only 4 stars because it is advertised as having bonus material, including discussion questions by the author. Disappointingly, it does not have bonus material. I only bought the Kindle version to get the discussion questions, so I didn't get what I wanted.

I ordered many copies of this book about 8 years ago and gave them to friends and family. I received positive feedback from everyone including my 60 something husband and my 20-y.o. daughter. I also bought the cd audio book. I just bought another copy for a friend to read. Even though the book is probably written for a pre-teen reader, it is very appropriate for adults and older readers. I find this book to be inspiring especially at the end which is a bit of a surprise.

I love this movie! I love this little boy!
I bought the DVD first and then the book. I truly enjoyed both. The actor, Alex Etel, has grown into a teenager, but he will remain that sweet little boy forever on the DVD. You will smile and have tears both as you watch the film. When you read the book it is so easy to visualize the characters. I cared about these people and wanted them to do well. You will too. And if you want to feel good when a movie is over, buy the DVD too.

Hard for me to get kids into this book. They are still stuck at the beginning. But may be a good conversation for kids book club

Love it! A must read for everyone, but then you must rent the movie after. It is well done too, but just not as thorough as the book.

This is a great book for all ages. It's very well written and so original you will remember it forever. Damian has to be one of the best characters to appear in a book in years. The book somehow manages to be hysterically funny, achingly sad and spiritually uplifting. The excellent movie adaptation closely follows the book though the book has more depth and background than the movie can provide. I'm actually not sure which came first the book or the screenplay but they enhance each other and Frank Cottrell Boyce is the author of both.

My 9 year old son loved it. Read it in a day and has re-read several times since.
I really enjoyed this movie, however, I had read the book first. The author, who also wrote the screenplay, really explained things in the book that only appeared briefly on the screen (I'm thinking, for example, of the scene in which the boy frees the birds. Much better in the book.) I'm not sure I would have had the same enjoyment of the movie had I not read the book.
