Description of this Book

While other kids are obsessing over the latest toy or watching cat videos on YouTube, Tess has one thing on her mind. She wants to get rich - and fast. But it?s not easy when you're from a big family with five kids and a dog.So when a million dollars falls into her lap - or to be more precise, her secret treasure chest in the backyard - all her dreams seem to have come true. The next day Tess turns up at school like a rockstar, walking down the school hall tossing lollipops to her adoring fans. She's living the high life . . .Until her diabetic sister, Olivia, ends up in hospital after eating too many lollipops, and a guilt-ridden Tess has a change of heart. With the help of her best friend, Toby, she makes a new plan. They are going to use the money for good. To help others. To make the world a better place. The first problem is, nobody trusts a ten-year-old with bucketloads of cash.The second problem is, the owner of the cash wants it back.Now Tess has to work out how to save her family from a criminal and stop the money from falling into the wrong hands.You?ll be snorting with laughter at this hilarious tale of a girl whose desire to become rich takes over her life - until she realises that the important things in life can?t be bought.
