    Absolutely WONDERFUL! It was such a nice book because it is so funny, especially when the main character(Joe)’s dad embarrasses him at school! The moral of this story is that money can’t buy friendship.

    Billionaire Boy is a spectacular book about the son of a loo-roll maker who makes a lot of money by his company “Bumfresh”. I liked this book because it is a mixture of funny, sad and money isn’t everything feeling. I really hope you enjoy it!
