The blog for books and movies

Joe has a lot of reasons to be happy. About a billion of them, in fact.

You see,  Joe’s rich. Really, really rich. He’s got his own bowling alley, his own cinema, even his own butler who is also an orang-utan. He’s the wealthiest twelve-year-old in the land.

Yes,  Joe has absolutely everything he could possibly want. But there’s just one thing he really needs: a friend…

    this is such an awesome book, I just want to read it again and again. It has a few unexpected things but is a twist of humour always puts a smile on my face. Joe Spud lived a normal life until one day his father came up with an awesome invention. This changed Joe’s life dramatically and yep you guessed it he became billionaire boy. All he wanted was one thing, that’s it one tiny thing, you may be thinking that surely he has everything he wants and more and you’re right but he just wanted a friend. This is something that all the money in the world can’ t buy but Joe’s dad just doesn’t seem to understand that! This book will be good for about 8+ my little brother read it and he loved it and understood it so I think that 8 is a good age to read this book. Kids younger than that could get their parents to read this book but they may not fully understand it. I rate this book an 8/10

  2. This book is funny and amazing. In this book, there is a lot of humour. It’s about a boy with lots of money because his dad has been very successful and he wants everything!!! Even though all the humour, there is a special meaning that money can’t buy love, happiness and friends. I would give this book an 8/10 and would recommend it for 8+

    This book is such a fun read!! I really enjoyed the book, it reminds you that money can’t make you happy but love and family is everything. The book is about a little boy and his dad, the boys dad becomes very successful with his business and collects a lot of money. The boy goes through different problems as he doesn’t many family and friends but a lot of money. I definitely recommend this book if you haven’t read it. I would rate this book an 7/10. This book would be probably suited to year 7 and 8s, but overall this book is such an exciting story and a great author!!

    This is a fantastic book! I love how the author has written something so funny yet sad. When I read this, I’ll have to admit, I shed a tear. Even though this may be a bit of a childish book, it teaches you an important lesson- money isn’t everything. I would rate this book an 8\10.

  5. I think this is a great book because it has lots of humor. Also a meaning about how some people really just want to have friends and that money is not everything. I would rate this book an 9/10
