Joe has a lot of reasons to be happy. About a billion of them,
in fact. The thing is, you see, Joe''s dad is rich. Really, really
rich. He buys Joe anything he wants, and lots of things he doesn''t
want besides. Joe''s got his own bowling alley, his own cinema,
even his own butler who is also an orangutan. No one dares to bully
him, because he can always pay them off.
But Joe isn''t happy. Why not? Because he''s got a billion
pounds ... but not a single friend. It''s pretty hard to trust
people when your dad''s idea of a birthday present is a
million-pound cheque. But then someone comes along ... someone who
likes Joe for Joe, not for his money. The problem is, Joe''s about
to learn that when money is involved, nothing is what it seems --
and nearly everything he believes is wrong.
As the hard truth is revealed, Joe learns that money can''t buy
everything, and that the best thing about his life ... might just
be something he''s had all along.
