Book Description

7 Sep 2006 Books For Boys (Book 6)

Imagine what it's like getting everything you want ...

That's how it is for Lucky Fries O'Mighty ... until the day of his seventh birthday. How can a poor boy like Billy Humble show Fries what his life is missing?

With a little bit of imagination, and his amazing dog, Whizz the Fleabag, that's how!

3.0 out of 5 stars Not just books for boys 26 Jan 2008
Ian Whybrow's the Boy Who Had (Nearly) Everything is a book for boys even though I am a girl and I really enjoyed reading it. Ian Whybrow got famous well-loved illustrator Tony Ross (that might ring a bell) to illustrate the book. Ian Whybrow wrote the not very well known series - Books for Boys and this one is so good I am going to try to get the others. Though this book is only sixty-four pages long every page (or nearly every page) is full of exciting events that tae place between Fries O'Mighty and Billy Humble (not forgetting Billy's cute little dog Whizz. My recommendation is for 7 - 11 year old boys (and maybe tomboys). Rating: 7/ 10.
