Jamie Brown is NOT Rich

By Adam Wallace

(1 customer review)


Jamie Brown and his family have no money. None. Zip. Zilch. Zero. Nada. Nix. Nachos. Then, when a letter from the mysterious Barnaby Von Barnabus arrives, everything changes. The question is … can the Browns handle their newfound fortune? Only time, and maybe the words in this book, will tell.

1 review for Jamie Brown is NOT Rich

  1. Emily Meldrum

    Ever dreamed of being super rich? For Jamie Brown and his fellow Hovel Street mates this is the unattainable-never-possible-not-even-in-a-hundred-years imaginable thought. While the neighbourhood is great, the kids are lots of fun, hunger is not far away and while the adults give their best for their families’ – money is always a limiting factor.
    Then a mystery letter from Jamie’s mum’s great-great-uncle twice removed arrives containing a cheque for one billion-trillion dollars … In the letter Uncle Barnaby directs them to the house he has bought them and explained that he has enrolled Jamie in Snootyville Grammar. Change is definitely upon them but how will it be taken?
    A new school is always a big deal, but especially when you enrol at Snootyville Grammar. Jamie Brown is the stand-out-newbie, who clearly does not belong. His first day does not go well – he learns too late that lunch from home and magic card tricks added to a few nerves can result in a visit to the principal’s office for unwanted behaviour! In trying to be himself Jamie Brown wins some friends and gains some who want to cause him trouble. How will Jamie Brown manage the bullying with new-school protocols and maintain a personality true to himself?
    Humour is ever-present and the text is written in an easy-going style peppered with lots of simple black and white illustrations. The clever cover that when tilted changes the title and picture from Jamie Brown is Not Rich to Jamie Brown is Rich is visually appealing and enticing for independent readers in the 7-12 year age group. It was a zany easy-to-read holiday book!
