    " Sorry Frank in my opinion not a children's book at all. I struggled through three chapters and had to put the book down. I loved Framed and Millions started off well but I was soon bored. I am sure many adults will enjoy this read, not for me unfortunately. "

    " a bank robbery brought them the money but how did they spend so much is so few days, and still make it to heaven??? "

    " Picked this up as a possible read for my library book club and boy, was it not the right thing. Socially awkward boy who is obsessed with the lives of the saints finds approximately 229,000 pounds in a bag by the train tracks. With his brother, they must figure out how to spend or dispose of the money in a short time, since the currency is about to change over to the euro and will soon be worthless. I thought this book was too British for American kids (the whole currency change would be very confusing to them), and the business with the saints was wild - really not accessible to the average 3-5th grade kid in the U.S. I also found the end, and the adults' response to the money, surprising and unpleasant. Confusing and not my fave - I told Daniel not to bother. "

    " I saw and loved the movie before I read and loved the book. The clerk at Bank Street Bookstore promised that if I didn't mind Damian's constant musing about religion and saintliness I would love the story, but warned me some people are bothered by seeing so much religion in a kid's book. I thought it was fascinating to have saintly visitations happening alongside a heist adventure. Damian's obsession with "being excellent" made him an unusual and memorable main character whose circular, well-intentioned and slightly batty attempts to make sense of adult worry-logic and comfort himself with it would resonate with anxious conscientious young readers. I read some chapters aloud to my younger sister (who is cool as a cucumber by temperament) and she laughed out loud to hear his antic reasoning, proving that for those who don't identify, there is much pleasure to be had from visiting Damian's corner of kook for a while. The writing was very well-paced for a television generation, since the author wrote Millions first as a screenplay it maintains a highly visual and plot-driven style. An edge of my seat read that would be enjoyed by upper elementary and middle school kids, if ever I could get it past the censors. "

    " I think that this was an okay book. It was about two brothers who find millions of dollars. It was kind of confusing, but in the end, I liked it alot. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Bridget Vreeland | 1/17/2014

    " I am now inspired to find million dollars by a train station.... "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Peggy | 1/17/2014

    " I liked this book a lot, it isn't appropriate for the competition group I was perusing it for (mostly because the main character is obsessed with saints) but I found it quirkily delightful. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Cortney | 1/3/2014

    " This is the second time I've read this book, this time to my nephews. They might have enjoyed it as much as me. This is such a good book to read especially this time of year. I'm sure I will read it again and enjoy it as much as I did both times around. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tj | 12/21/2013

    " This book was really good. It is about a couple of kids who end up with one million dollars and they can not think of what to do with it. It was really fun to read and i would most likely read it again. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Gracie | 12/19/2013

    " I didn't like this book so much. Damien kept doing stupid things and not being smart with all of the money he found. Plus he was crazy about the saints and all that. Overall I didn't like it. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Julie | 12/5/2013

    " Cute story about 2 brothers who find a bag filled with British pound notes. The only problem is that England is about to adopt the Euro and the pound notes will become obsolete in just a few weeks. So much money, so little time... "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Melinda | 10/4/2013

    " We listened to this book on CD and the narrator made the book a delight! This book answers one of life's most intriguing questions, what would you buy with a million dollars, and is portrayed through two grade-school aged boys. This book kept us guessing as well as laughing until the last page. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sara | 10/1/2013

    " This is a book to re-read. Touching and comforting, a beautiful family adventure story that everyone should read, and then read again. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sherri | 8/17/2013

    " I have just reread Millions as it is one of my favourite kids books. Very funny and moving story. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Aaron | 6/24/2013

    " I loved the storyline throughout and there is just something about Cottrell's style of writing which keeps me so entertained whilst reading every page! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Bridget | 6/21/2013

    " The movie is good, too. And this book includes one of the funniest Mormon anecdotes in fiction I've ever read. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Deborah | 11/5/2012

    " intriguing premise, but, in the end, shallow and manipulative "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Rebekah | 9/27/2012

    " So far, this is a great book. With a funny side to it and a sad side to it. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kyle | 5/9/2012

    " A book about a young boy happens to meet paths with his fate. This is a thrilling and mind jolting book into the world of money. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mya | 4/2/2012

    " This is a very sweet children's book. I recommend reading it. Or watch the movie, which does a good job of adapting the book. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Lesley | 2/15/2012

    " I read this before the movie came out and loved it, then quite liked the movie as well. You can booktalk it as a caper: what would you do if you found a million dollars? can you imagine what might go wrong? But readers will also get a touching story about family and a tone of bittersweet humor. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jennifer | 12/22/2011

    " The audiobook is worth listening to just to hear the narrator pronounce the word "money." "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Teri | 12/16/2011

    " Boy we just could not get into this one. It felt like the story was going nowhere long enough that we turned it off. If anyone thinks we're missing out, I'd love to hear from you. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Elizabeth | 5/3/2011

    " Maybe more a 3.5/5, but the extra half because I saw the movie first a few years ago and loved it so much. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Daniel | 4/23/2011

    " Bizarre British tale. Loved it. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Eda | 4/17/2011

    " Well... Quite a typical kids book. It's still one of those books that I'm rushing to finish I guess:( "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Camryn Leigh | 4/9/2011

    " Not that great, the movie was WAY better... "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kyle | 3/8/2011

    " A book about a young boy happens to meet paths with his fate. This is a thrilling and mind jolting book into the world of money. "

    " This book just really made no sense to me. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kori | 1/7/2011

    " LOVED, LOVED, LOVED this!!! We actually listened to the audio book - the reader was perfect! Kids loved it - lots of laughs! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Heather | 12/5/2010

    " Didn't enjoy this one as much as Cosmic or Framed. I loved the two boys, but I couldn't get over the absolute lack of consequence. Also, I didn't like the three extremely bizarre "Mormon" neighbors. Thanks, but these weirdos do not represent the Mormon faith in any way. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Abigailann | 11/29/2010

    "
    A tale of the perils and pleasures money can bring- how it brings out the best in some and the worst in others. This book was a pleasure to read, full of humour and human interest. I haven't seen the movie- but might consider it after this read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Peggy | 11/17/2010

    " I liked this book a lot, it isn't appropriate for the competition group I was perusing it for (mostly because the main character is obsessed with saints) but I found it quirkily delightful. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sam | 10/29/2010

    " SPIOLER ALERT
    This book is about a kid who gets millions of dollars thrown at him by a robber but to his knowledge he thinks it came soaring out of the snowy blinded sky. He gets nervous because of the robber "
