This was such fun to read. If you accidentally found yourself with a large sum of money that was not stolen, just spare, what would you spend it on? I really enjoyed what the boys did to get things they wanted, from a ride home to pieces of work completed. Loved the way their dad approached their antics – I think he was my favourite character. Strongly recommend.

I thought that it was a intruiging story about burglars and being rich. There is lots of humour and complex exchanging of money. My favourite character was probably Barney.
