A few things to know about Dylan
He is the only boy in his entire town—so forget about playing soccer.
His best friends are two pet chickens.
His family owns the world's only gas station/coffee house—their pies are to die for, but profits are in the hole.
Criminal instincts run in his family—his sister is a mastermind-in-training, and the tax men are after his father for questioning.
And one more small thing about nine-year-old Dylan—the crime of the century has just fallen into his lap.
With the same easy mix of wit, warmth, and wonder that made his debut novel, Millions, an award-winning international bestseller, Frank Cottrell Boyce tells the story of a boy who reminds an entire town of the power of art.
