David Walliams novel BILLIONAIRE BOY follows a 12-year-old boy named Joe who has everything he could ever want, from a golden underwater Ferrari to his very own cinema! Joe and his Dad have more money than you could imagine, but what Joe really needs is a friend. When Joe arrives at his new school, life gets tough. Facing the school bully, his Dad’s new girlfriend and the world’s worst school canteen, Joe is about to learn that money might buy you a lot, but it can’t buy you everything.
