Product description

One boy. One girl. One camel. Squillions of dollars. A plan that can’t fail – or can it?

Oliver’s parents own a bank. This makes them very rich, very important and very busy. Oliver, on the other hand, is terrible at maths and aspires to nothing more than owning the puppy in his local pet shop. But one day, a mysterious woman buys the puppy – threatening to harm it if Oliver doesn’t pay thousands of dollars back to her! (Unfortunately, Oliver’s parents seem to have misplaced her life savings. Something to do with some stuff on the news.) So Oliver hatches a crazy plan – one which will go much further than he ever imagined… The latest zany and heartwarming novel from Morris Gleitzman, author of Bumface and Once.

“Morris Gleitzman has a rare gift for writing very funny stories and an even rarer gift of wrapping very serious stories inside them.” Guardian

“Morris Gleitzman gives form to human faith – gives it a clear sweet voice and a gaze of perfect directness.” Meg Rosoff
