Author – David Walliams
Thanks to an amazing invention of his father’s, Joe Spud has everything a child could want. And that’s a lot! 1 million pounds for his birthday, his own formula 1 car and racetrack, 100,000 pounds weekly pocket money, 100 inch plasma tv’s in every room of the house. You name it – he’s got it – or can buy it.
The one thing he wants but can’t buy is a friend. Joe goes to a very posh school, but he’s called names and asks his dad if he can go to the normal school nearby. He wants a friend that doesn’t know how much money they have, and he soon meets Bob.
This is a hilarious story about friendship and how money can’t buy happiness, friendship or love.
Filled with crazy lists of everything from what he owns to what’s on the school dinner menu, this story is a thousand laughs. Tony Ross’s illustrations are scattered throughout the book adding even more.
