The book Billionaire Boy is a book written by David Walliams about a young boy who is a billionaire and has more than his needs. The reason he is a billionaire is that his father makes different kind of loo rolls which everyone uses. That makes him extremely rich. He lives in a huge mansion and goes to a school where only extremely rich people go. Even though he has everything, he has no friends. Not a single one.
Billionaire Boy is a book about how money and fame can change people, as well as how it makes people act differently towards you if you’re the rich one. This might not sound like the most interesting topic for a kids’ book, but in the hands of David Walliams, it is both touching and very funny.
You’ll fall in love with the characters and not just Joe and his misguided dad, Mr. Spud. The supporting characters are great too, with a pair of bullying twins, a dinner lady who has quite an extraordinary talent for making vomit-inducing school dinners, and a shop owner Raj who is industrious and wise. This book made me realize being rich isn’t always easy for some people. With illustrations and a bit of an adventure, this book is also flowing with emotions.
The book manages to be heartwarming and hilarious at the same time. It’s a really special tale that makes you want to read more and more because it is full of tension and surprises. This is a great book very witty and grips you to the story, probably aimed mostly at 8-10-year-olds.
