About this deal

His second book, Framed was inspired by a news story he’d read in an old scrapbook: During the Second World War, a collection of valuable paintings from the National Gallery was hidden in a slate mine for safekeeping. Steven lives with his partner Jay and his dog in Crouch End where he dunks endless amounts of biscuits in big red spotty cups of tea whilst listening to Radio 2.

I loved the poignant humour in it, and I thought that there was an unexpected amount of philosophical depth. Prez has one summer to find ten things about the earth that make it worth saving - but can he do it? The story is told in first person from Damian’s point of view and the language he used is mostly your every vocabulary except for Damian’s extensive vocabulary. You guys were so fab and Dawn was such a lovely presence in the schools - I will absolutely be in touch next time I'm in your neck of the woods.Furthermore, they have to keep their cache secret from their Dad and from the robbers who stole the haul in the first place. I have even talked the head into a little revamp of the library so that we can display them properly! I haven't charted out my visits for the summer term, but I'm sure there are several in the south) and thanks so much for being so fantastic! This idea is voiced throughout with grace and skill as Boyce shows the problems that money can cause. There are two major plot points: Damian (the protagonist) and Anthony are trying to cope with the recent death of their mother, whilst simultaneously trying to figure out how to spend a rather large sum of money that has come their way.

There is also an interesting lesson in inflation in the school yard, not to mention several good examples of the corrupting influence of money. At the end, Anthony says, “And so they failed to make proper use of their once in a life time investment opportunity and they all regretted it ever after. Millions is an interesting story about two young brothers who stumble upon a bag filled with thousands of pounds and must try and spend it before the currency is changed to the euro. This book will find appeal and bring about discussion on many topics, particularly the correct way to deal with money.But what would you do if a massive bag of cash dropped from the sky and you had only a few days to spend it before it became worthless?

Rather, I wanted the author to take any sort of stand instead of leaving the issues of responsibility, charity, and honesty so murky.What would you do if you were praying for a miracle that would make everything better, when a bag full of money falls from the heavens? It's a bit different from the movie, which made it a surprising ending, and I actually liked the book ending better. Damian is obsessed with saints and builds himself a little hermitage to live in down by the railroad tracks. It was shortlisted for the Guardian Children's Fiction Prize 2008 and the inaugural Roald Dahl Funny Prize. Damian is convinced it is a gift from God, and contemplates with his older brother Anthony the best way to spend it.
