Welcome to Miss Mulligan's Class
Mr Saunders, Miss Mulligan & Mrs Walker
This term we will be reading the book Billionaire Boy
Hugely entertaining, this captivating story is also thought provoking about the perils of having way too much money. Joe Spud is the richest twelve-year-old in the world; he has everything his heart desires – except happiness. As one disaster follows another, Joe and his father both learn the hard way what really matters. David Walliams third book for children is a neat combination of hilarity and morality in the best spirit of the master story-teller of the genre, Roald Dahl.
