About this title


Thirteen-year-old George's plans to raise money for his school and keep a percentage for himself create chaos and get him in trouble with his friends and the authorities

From School Library Journal:

Grade 6-8-- The complex and eventful plot of this British import involves a boy's attempts to obtain a skateboard through the creation of various scams to raise charitable money for his school and skim a percentage of the proceeds for himself. Along the way, George and his friends come across a statue that has been stolen from a local museum and run afoul of the bungling thieves. The action and broad humor comes fast and furiously. Some may object, though, to the rather amoral values of George and his compatriots as they hatch their schemes without any thought for the consequences. Aside from a few references to unknown TV shows and some Briticisms, the book makes the trip across the Atlantic fairly well. (It has the vaguely suburban setting of many American young adult novels.) On the whole, this is a bit of fluff that may appeal to young people looking for some lighthearted fun. --Todd Morning, Schaumburg Township Public Library, IL
